Reconnaissance repertoire readied: scientists prepare for emerging dechlorane flame retardants

Date: Nov 14, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

The perfect villain is the one that evades detection. Attempting to thwart the suspect and ill-defined dechlorane pollutants, scientists based in Belgium have fashioned a Time-of-Flight MS assay for analysing these pollutants in human serum.

Blood, sweat and fatty acids

Date: Nov 1, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Sampling fatty acids? No sweat! In fact, do…a new non-invasive method of sampling fatty acid methyl esters using filter paper to collect sweat could simplify the diagnosis of disrupted lipid metabolism.

Journal Highlight: Development and validation of a rapid method for identification and quantitation of benzophenone and related 17 derivatives in paper and cardboard packaging materials by GC/MS

Date: Oct 17, 2016

Author: separationsNOW

A GC/MS method has been devised to test migration levels of benzophenone and 17 derivatives from 11 different paper or cardboard materials into foodstuffs.

Not tarred with the same brush: Study attempts to define the varied molecular makeup of coal tars

Date: Oct 15, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Mother Nature’s fruits are certainly not made under quality controls or standard operating procedures. If we are to use the coals lurking amidst her underbelly, we must live with the vast differences in their phenolic makeup. Could their molecular stratification be a successful coping mechanism?

Making the international national: scientists aim to lock in aromas of exported foods

Date: Oct 1, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Amidst the hustle bustle of the Twenty-First Century, many of us are tapping into cuisines from far-flung cultures. But, having traversed the high seas, how do they retain their flavours? Through meticulous testing, as shown by collaborators from Thailand, the USA, and Singapore.

As sick as a dog: test accurately quantitates inflammation marker in canines

Date: Sep 14, 2016

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Blood tests have long benefited humanity, but could a battery of tests aid veterinary practices too? Researchers from the USA and Thailand are optimistic.

Journal Highlight: Identifying chiral molecules and their enantiomeric excesses in extraterrestrial samples: An experimental journey

Date: Sep 12, 2016

Author: separationsNOW

The state-of-the-art on enantiomeric distributions of chiral organic molecules in extraterrestrial materials is reviewed, focusing on innovative methodologies such as the design and use of chiral stationary phases for GC columns for meteorite analysis.

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.
