Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Pollock's paints: Modern art X-rayed

A non-invasive study using macro X-ray fluorescence mapping (MA-XRF) and multivariate curve resolution-alternating least squares (MCR-ALS) analysis has been used to work out what paints Jackson Pollock used to create his work Number 1A from 1948, the analysis also suggests in what order the drips may have been applied.

The first intermetallic double salt containing the noble metal, platinum, has been synthesised by researchers at the US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory in Ames, Iowa. The team used X-ray studies to verify their method.

X-Radiation damage: Testing the pulse

X-rays can damage crystals and so precise structure determinations of fragile proteins is often stymied by the very technique one hopes to use. Serial femtosecond crystallography can circumvent this problem where a rapid fire snapshot is obtained before the protein is obliterated. A study of the effects of using this technique in a study of photosystem II helps map the damage as it occurs.

We are proud to announce a new series of educational webinars run in collaboration with Chromedia, COAST, and SciMind, a product of the American Chemical Society. These webinars will build into a must-have set of tutorial materials for the analytical scientist.

In this article, the late Ron Jenkins, formerly of the International Center for Diffraction Data provides a brief but comprehensive overview of modern X-ray techniques.

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.
