Two seconds here could save you months in the lab by using Wiley's Compound Search tool. Check the database coverage now... it's free!         We understand that you don't have time to wade through thousands of results. Compound Search's sole purpose is to tell you whether a compound appears in a specific database so that you'll know whether that database meets your needs. To speed this up, we provide exact structure matches only. Compound Search enables users to perform...

Combining hydrogen and its heavier sibling deuterium under pressure can create a novel, disordered, "Phase IV" material as revealed by Raman spectroscopy according to US researchers.

Micro-Raman spectroscopy combined with image analysis can be a potentially useful tool for rapid and label-free identification of normal sperm cell by providing both morphological and biochemical information.

Boron artifacts in mass spectrometry originating from glass bottles

Steve Down

Nov 24, 2014

Unexpected borate complexes detected during the electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry of hydroxy acids were traced to trimethyl borate from borosilicate glass bottles that leached into the methanol being stored.
