UV/visible spectroscopy was used to determine the iron catalyst content in carbon nanotubes using a colorimetric technique with 1,10-phenanthroline.

Comet Lovejoy is releasing vast quantities of two organic compounds - ethanol and glycolaldehyde - in its wake, according to an international spectroscopic study. This is the first time ethanol has been identified in a comet and the presence of this as well as glycolaldehyde adds to the growing evidence that comets may have been the source of complex organic molecules necessary for the emergence of life on Earth.

The interactions of a dicarbocyanine dye, 3,3′-diethylthiadicarbocyanine, with DNA G-quadruplexes were studied by a combination of various spectroscopic techniques.
