The UV/Vis channel covers all aspects of research into ultraviolet and visible spectroscopy techniques used for forensics and drug testing, environmental analysis, art and archaeology research, food quality analysis, pharmaceutical analysis, material science and cancer research.
UV-Vis spectroscopy has been used for the first time to study phenolics and other compounds present in a type of sweet, red wine emerging from the North West of Spain. The approach could be used to study the components of other beverages too as well as offering quality analysis (QA) data on produce.Read More

An explanation as to why we cannot detect 85 percent of the predicted mass of the universe has emerged from fundamental particle research carried out in the 1930s. US physicists have now proposed that dark matter, may be composed of Majorana fermions, which are anapoles with a doughnut-shaped electromagnetic field invisible to any known detector technology.

The UV absorption and electronic circular dichroism (ECD) spectra of (R)- and (S)-nicotine and (S)-nornicotine in aqueous solution were measured to a significantly lower wavelength range than previously reported, allowing the identification of four previously unobserved electronic transitions.

Japanese scientists have developed a new type of colouring agent that is not only environmentally friendly but does not fade like conventional textile dyes and pigments. The colourants consist of submicrometre-sized silicon dioxide particles and carbon black and can be sprayed on to the desired surface to generate bright colours that are permanent and highly fade resistant.View All Ezines
