Golden pop: nanoparticles for SERS

Date: Feb 1, 2011

Author: David Bradley

Gold nanoparticles that resemble tiny popcorn kernels can be produced using a simple two-step process. Researchers at Jackson State University in the US have used these particles in SERS experiments to detect malignant prostate cancer at just the 50-cell level. The same particles can also be activated to kill the cells.

Fast-track walking pneumonia test: SERS speeds up diagnosis

Date: Jan 5, 2011

Author: David Bradley

A new approach to testing for a common form of pneumonia using nanoparticles to boost SERS signals can cut the time to diagnosis from several days to a mere ten minutes, according to research published in the journal Plos One.

Journal Highlight: Understanding tissue specific compositions of bioenergy feedstocks through hyperspectral Raman imaging

Date: Jan 3, 2011

Author:

Hyperspectral Raman imaging was used to study the tissue/cell type specific distribution of lignin and cellulose polymers within the plant cell walls of two potential bioenergy feedstocks: corn stover and Eucalyptus globulus.

Sensitising Raman: Forensic and diagnostic boost

Date: Dec 1, 2010

Author: David Bradley

The efforts of forensic investigators are often stymied by the diverse and complex nature of sample mixtures they must analyse but low analyte concentration is probably the most problematic issue they must address. Now, a US team has found a way to improve Raman spectroscopy for low-concentration analysis. Their approach could also improve medical diagnosis, drug/chemical development, and in national security.

Journal Highlight: Verdigris pigment: a mixture of compounds. Input from Raman spectroscopy

Date: Nov 29, 2010

Author:

The reproduction of an old recipe to obtain the pigment known as verdigris leads to a complex mixture of hydrated copper(II) acetates, which was characterised by Raman spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction.

Olive oil biophenols: Raman reveals all

Date: Nov 1, 2010

Author: David Bradley

The first report of Raman spectroscopy being used to look at chemical structures in olive oil has been published. The study establishes Raman as a rapid, non-destructive and reliable analytical technique for identifying bioactive components, such as biophenols in dietary extracts and surpasses other analytical methods.

Ionic liquids in the gas phase - Raman spectroscopy reveals molecular secret

Date: Oct 1, 2010

Author: David Bradley

At first glance ionic liquids would not seem that unusual, heat sodium chloride to a high enough temperature and it will melt. But, ionic materials that are liquid at room temperature are much stranger. Now, a gas-phase Raman study has been used to understand their nature and reveals that in the gas phase each ion of the pair exists as a distinct molecule.
