Journal Highlight: Investigation of variations in the human urine metabolome amongst European populations: An exploratory search for biomarkers of people at risk‐of‐poverty

Date: Jul 16, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The human urine metabolome has been examined for common biomarkers representing dietary deficiencies amongst European populations at risk of poverty and the relationship between these markers and nutritional deficiencies was discussed.

Sputum proteome: Optimising label-free mapping

Date: Jul 15, 2018

Author: Steve Down

The healthy human sputum proteome has been derived in an international project, assessing the sources of variability and revealing a core set of 284 proteins that will be useful for studying patients with inflammatory respiratory diseases.

Homemade explosives: Inorganic oxidisers exposed

Date: Jul 15, 2018

Author: Steve Down

Atmospheric flow tube-mass spectrometry, which has been used to detect conventional explosives, has now been applied successfully to the detection of inorganic salts used as oxidisers in homemade explosives.

Space nitrogen: Terahertz spectroscopy

Date: Jul 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Researchers in Austria have observed rotational transitions of the nonlinear triatomic molecular anion NH2- - the amide ion - using terahertz spectroscopy in a cryogenic radio frequency ion trap. The finding could point the way to detecting nitrogen-containing molecules in space.

Packaged paclitaxel: NMR unravels cyclodextrin

Date: Jul 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Supramolecular nanoassemblies that can emulate and perhaps modulate biological processes have become a focus of research. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and other techniques have now been used to follow one such self-assembled system, a cyclodextrin molecule bearing a photoisomer and hooked to cellular microtubules using the anticancer agent paclitaxel.

Autism metabolites: Chemical analysis

Date: Jul 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

A physiological test for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) was developed in 2017. Now an algorithm that extracts information from an analysis of a person's metabolic profile corroborates the findings and could lead to a new diagnostic approach allowing earlier medical intervention in children suspected of being on the spectrum.

Melting in the heat: Atomic movie

Date: Jul 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

US researchers have used a high energy source to carry out an investigation of the heterogeneous to homogeneous melting transition. The visualization based on ultrafast electron diffraction improves our understanding of how metals melt and could be used to guide the design of extreme engineering systems such as fusion power reactors, steel processing plants, and spacecraft.

Journal Highlight: Utilization of X‐ray computed tomography for the exclusion of a specific caliber and bullet type in a living shooting victim

Date: Jul 9, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

CT scans were carried out on a bystander claimed to have been shot by a police officer to match qualitative and quantitative aspects of the unremoved bullet with police issued 9 mm Luger ammunition.
