Curious about Mars: Rover Raman

Date: Oct 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

NASA's Curiosity rover has roamed the surface of Mars for the last five years with its ChemCam laser system capturing chemical data from its surroundings. Details of a Raman instrument that will be aboard the ChemCam on the NASA Mars 2020 rover, will be reported at the OSA Laser Congress, 1-5 October 2017 in Nagoya, Japan.

Environmental, healthcare sensor: Thiourea testing

Date: Oct 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Co-doped manganese oxide nanoparticles (CMOs) can be made with a facile hydrothermal method and used in an emzyme-free, yet highly sensitive thiourea sensor. A whole raft of analytical techniques, including ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy, was used to characterize the particles.

Journal Highlight: Quantitative analysis of total hydrocarbons and water in oil-contaminated soils with attenuated total reflection infrared spectroscopy

Date: Sep 18, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The feasibility of direct quantitative analysis of total hydrocarbons and water in oil-contaminated soils using ATR-mid-IR spectroscopy has been evaluated, the spectral data being used to build calibration models for hydrocarbon contamination and moisture content.

Mixed-mode model made for medicinal antibodies

Date: Sep 16, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Mixed-mode chromatography (MMC), which combines the properties of ion-exchange chromatography (IEC) and hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC), is increasingly used for the purification of various proteins, such as medicinal antibodies. Scientists from Mannheim University of Applied Sciences and Roche Pharmaceuticals’ Munich site developed equations to predict the elution of a bispecific antibody from an MMC column.

Dialysis membranes: Adsorbed proteins

Date: Sep 15, 2017

Author: Steve Down

The effects of protein adsorption on two types of hemodialysis membrane have been studied by Chinese scientists to identify the unwanted biochemical reactions that occur in an effort to design more efficient membrane materials.

New psychoactive substance screening: Wastewater from city festival

Date: Sep 15, 2017

Author: Steve Down

European scientists have used high-resolution mass spectrometry to screen for new psychoactive substances in wastewater during a city festival in Amsterdam, finding that traditional drugs are still dominant in the Dutch illicit drug scene.
