Journal Highlight: Nanodiamonds and silicate minerals in ordinary chondrites as determined by micro-Raman spectroscopy

Date: Jul 3, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Raman spectra of silicate and carbonaceous minerals in three ordinary chondrites have been measured to improve understanding of the impact process including peak metamorphic pressures present in carbon-bearing ordinary chondrites.

Crush a grape: Raman and FTIR seed phenols

Date: Jul 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

The extraction of phenols from grape skin and seeds has been optimized by researchers at the University of Seville, Spain and Dublin Technology Institute, Ireland. They used Raman and attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopies to confirm the identities of the compounds remaining in the residue after processing.

Journal Highlight: Distinguishing individual DNA bases in a network by non-resonant tip-enhanced Raman scattering

Date: Jun 15, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Scanning tunneling microscope-controlled non-resonant TERS has been used to distinguish unambiguously between two individual complementary DNA bases (adenine and thymine) with a spatial resolution down to 0.9 nm.

Journal Highlight: Resonance Raman and UV-visible microscopy reveals that conditioning red blood cells with repeated doses of sodium dithionite increases haemoglobin oxygen uptake

Date: May 1, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Raman confocal microscopy and UV–vis microscopy showed that successive additions of sodium dithionite to suspensions of red blood cells increased the rate and the capacity to uptake oxygen.

Journal Highlight: Raman microspectroscopy as a useful tool for nanopathology

Date: Apr 3, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The possibilities and advantages of Raman microspectroscopy for the detection and characterization of particles of an unknown nature in human nasal mucosa and amniotic fluids have been surveyed.

Food colourant: Sensor tech

Date: Apr 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

A material that has been used as a food dye for decades in corn chips and ice cream could be used in novel sensor technology, according to researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Journal Highlight: Resonance Raman of oxygen dangling bonds in amorphous silicon dioxide

Date: Mar 6, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A resonance Raman band induced by ionizing radiation in amorphous silicon dioxide, which can be detected under ultraviolet laser excitation, has been assigned to oxygen dangling bonds.

Influenza attack: Raman to reveal hijack

Date: Mar 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Laura Fabris of Rutgers University, New York state, USA, and her colleagues are using surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy to investigate the role that might be played by TIPs - therapeutic interfering particles in defending us against influenza, flu.
