X-ray @ spectroscopyNOW

The X-ray spectrometry channel covers all aspects of research into techniques using X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and crystallography used in material science, protein analysis, art and archaeology research, environmental analysis, biotechnology and pharmaceutical analysis. 

Monthly Highlight

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: X-ray toys: Toxic contaminants

X-ray fluorescence spectrometry has been used by British scientists to analyse the presence of elements within individual plastic toys. The study reveals worrying levels of bromine, cadmium, lead, and other chronically toxic elements that might leach from broken toys chewed or inadvertently swallowed by a child.

X-ray diffraction data sensitive to metal nanoparticle surface structure has been combined with in situ mass spectrometry to observe the ambient pressure carbon monoxide oxidation over a platinum-rhodiumcatalyst.

An EDXRF study of inorganic chemical elements in eyeshadows has shown that commercial regularization and International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients standardization are not fully complied with by manufacturers in Brazil.

An X-ray fluorescence study has revealed the text of an ancient medical text, "On the Mixtures and Powers of Simple Drugs" by Galen of Pergamon written over in the 11th Century. Galen was physician to emperors and gladiators and wrote many works on medical practice and philosophy.
