Islands in the exhaust stream: X-rays get nano

Date: Apr 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

X-ray diffraction data sensitive to metal nanoparticle surface structure has been combined with in situ mass spectrometry to observe the ambient pressure carbon monoxide oxidation over a platinum-rhodiumcatalyst.

Galen's hidden medicine: X-rays reveal

Date: Apr 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

An X-ray fluorescence study has revealed the text of an ancient medical text, "On the Mixtures and Powers of Simple Drugs" by Galen of Pergamon written over in the 11th Century. Galen was physician to emperors and gladiators and wrote many works on medical practice and philosophy.

Journal Highlight: Interpreting technical evidence from spectral imaging of paintings by Édouard Manet in the Courtauld Gallery

Date: Mar 12, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Four paintings by Édouard Manet in The Courtauld Gallery have been investigated for the first time using a range of non-invasive in situ analyses including macro X-ray fluorescence, reflection spectral imaging, portable UV–Vis–NIR spectroscopy, portable Raman spectroscopy and reflection FTIR.

Testing the mettle of metal free: X-rayed catalysts

Date: Mar 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

A study of graphene catalysts by researchers at Rice University and their colleagues has revealed traces of manganese, which could explain some of the anomalous behaviour of these materials and suggest new ways to make ultrathin fuel-cell components.

Cancer enzyme targets: Neutrons and glaucoma drug

Date: Feb 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

A neutron crystallographic analysis of various drugs used to treat the eye condition glaucoma and their enzyme target could point the way to novel pharmaceuticals for targeting aggressive cancers more effectively because of a link with human carbonic anhydrases (hCAs).

Journal Highlight: Ptychographic X-ray imaging of colloidal crystals

Date: Feb 5, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Ptychographic coherent X-ray imaging has been applied to obtain a projection of the electron density of colloidal crystals, which are promising nanoscale materials for optoelectronic applications and important model systems.

X-ray toys: Toxic contaminants

Date: Feb 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry has been used by British scientists to analyse the presence of elements within individual plastic toys. The study reveals worrying levels of bromine, cadmium, lead, and other chronically toxic elements that might leach from broken toys chewed or inadvertently swallowed by a child.
