X-ray @ spectroscopyNOW

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. 

Monthly Highlight

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Fuel cell: X-rayed nanocrystals

X-ray studies have been used as a tool to demonstrate the structure of graphene oxide/metal nanocrystal multilaminates where hydrogen gas pumped into a fuel cell mixture can react with magnesium nanocrystals wrapped in reduced graphene oxide layers to form the stable magnesium hydride for a more efficient fuel cell technology.

Integrated solar energy: EDS lights up

Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) has been used by researchers in China to study semiconducting sulfides for full-spectrum solar energy conversion with the benefit of efficient charge separation.

When the almost ubiquitous cell regulatory enzymes known as protein kinases go awry they can be involved in cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes. The determination of the crystal structure of an important member of the family, PKGI (protein kinase GI) will have implications for understanding the biomolecular mechanisms and perhaps point the way to novel therapies. 

X-ray diffraction, possibly time-resolved during growth or annealing, has been used to study polytypism in free-standing nanowires and statistical distributions of the polytypes have been are simulated and compared.

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.

Future Events

The goal of HPLC 2016 is to bring together scientists who use and develop HPLC, capillary electrophoresis, supercritical fluidic chromatography, microfluidics, and mass spectrometry to exchange ideas, best practices, and latest developments.

This year IMSC is hosted by the Canadian Society for Mass Spectrometry and the Canadian scientific community.
