The big antifreeze: Raman thaws out the science

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Simulated Raman spectroscopy has provided new insights into how antifreeze proteins, which have been known about for decades, actually work to keep alive animals such as fish and insects despite many living in temperatures that would otherwise frees their bodily fluids.

New doped laser material: X-ray and electron probe

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy have been used to characterise crystals of alumina doped with neodymium ions. The material is a new laser material developed by researchers at the University of California San Diego, USA, that is can emit ultra-short, high-power pulses.

Journal Highlight: Advancing Mg/Ca analysis of coralline algae as a climate proxy by assessing LA‐ICP‐OES sampling and coupled Mg/Ca ‐ δ18O analysis

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The use of LA‐ICP‐OES for Mg/Ca analysis of the climate proxy coralline alga Clathromorphum compactum has been validated and showed that climate archive verification is required for each unique coralline algal specimen.

Journal Highlight: Unravelling the mystery of lunar anomalous craters using radar and infrared observations

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The existence and spatial distribution of anomalous lunar craters having a high circular polarization ratio that have been imaged by radar and IR spectral measurements do not indicate the presence of large quantities of pure water ice in the polar regions, say researchers.

Journal Highlight: Prediction of skin anti‐aging clinical benefits of an association of ingredients from marine and maritime origins: Ex vivo evaluation using a label‐free quantitative proteomic and customized data processing approach

Date: Jul 23, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A comprehensive evaluation of the activity on the skin of an association of ingredients from marine and maritime origins has been carried out using label‐free quantitative proteomic analysis, in order to predict the clinical benefits if used in a skin care product.

Journal Highlight: Diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging for tumour staging of bladder cancer: Systematic review and meta‐analysis

Date: Jul 23, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The accuracy of MRI for local staging of bladder cancer for four clinical scenarios (T‐stage thresholds) has been assessed considered against current standards for clinical staging and secondarily to identify sources for variability in accuracy.

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.

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.
