Tell-tale traces: Mass spectral data of methylated amino acids added to public libraries

Date: Sep 6, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Molecular diagnostics is undergoing a revolution. Long gone are the times when just the concentration of a biomolecule is all that mattered. In the future, how a biomolecule is ‘tagged’ may matter much more. Striving to deliver the future, Indian scientists teamed up to create a mass spectral library of methylated amino acids.

α-pinene + O2 = ?: Study fills in blanks of α-pinene chemistry

Date: Aug 17, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

The oxidation of α-pinene is somewhat of an enigma. Scientists have frankly acknowledged their ignorance, but that has not prevented Turinites from Purdue University and the California Institute of Technology from attempting to crack the enigma.

Journal Highlight: Application of the fast sensory method 'Rate-All-That-Apply' in chocolate quality control compared with DHS-GC-MS

Date: Aug 15, 2016

Author: separationsNOW

The sensory Rate-All-That-Apply (RATA) method for quality control in chocolate production was compared with dynamic headspace GC/MS, showing that they should be used as complementary methods.

A breath of fresh air: sampling of δ13C and δ2H methane isotopes becomes simultaneous and automated

Date: Jul 15, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Humanity has massively overdrawn its methane budget so the international community has agreed to take drastic action. To aid the monitoring of our methane expenditure and to track the sources of our bad habits, scientists from Germany and New Zealand teamed up to devise the first fully automated system able to simultaneously sample two methane isotopes in small volumes of air.
