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.
Caltech chemists believe they can now explain one of the last remaining mysteries concerning the process of photosynthesis in which light powers chemical conversion of carbon dioxide and water into sugars and oxygen. The work is based on synthetic, spectroscopic, and electrochemical studies, including X-ray spectroscopic work, and might one day lead to a range of novel photocatalysts that could be used to drive the water-splitting reactions in a synthetic analogue of photosynthesis.Read More

Makoto Fujita of the University of Tokyo, Japan, and Kari Rissanen of the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, have used a porous substrate to bring order to an uncrystallisable target molecule for X-ray diffraction studies, which precludes the need to develop a method for producing crystals of the material. The technique allows nanogram quantities of the target compound to be analysed, the researchers say.View All Ezines
The 1962 book, Fifty Years of X-Ray Diffraction, dedicated to the International Union of Crystallography on the occasion of the commemoration meeting in Munich, July 1962, by P.P. Ewald (editor), and numerous crystallographers has been digitized and put on the web as a free site by the ICU.
