Catching makers of crystal meth by chemometrics

Date: Mar 15, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Identifying impurities in the illegal drug N-methylamphetamine, a.k.a. methamphetamine or crystal meth, can help law enforcement agencies detect the likely source and the synthetic route used. Scientists from the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Research Centre of Iran used chemometric methods to detect trace impurities hidden under the large main peak in pure samples of seized methamphetamine.

Fab separations for Fab antibodies predicted by QSAR?

Date: Mar 1, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Since an increasing array of separation methods are now used for proteins, interest is growing in using computational methods, such as quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR) calculations, to predict the likely response of proteins of interest to different systems, so that separations can be predicted. Researchers have used QSAR to predict the response of various antibody Fragment antigen-binding (Fab) fragments in different separation systems, with varying degrees of success.

Supercritical chromatography and chemometrics capture cannabis compounds

Date: Feb 15, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Cannabis is a popular illegal drug, but is also increasingly used for medicinal purposes. A new, rapid UHPSFC method for determining the different compounds in cannabis has been developed by a team from the University of Mississippi, who went on to group different cannabis samples using chemometric methods.

Journal Highlight: Correlation of lipidomic composition of cell lines and tissues of breast cancer patients using hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization mass spectrometry and multivariate data analysis

Date: Feb 6, 2017

Author: separationsNOW

The lipidomic compositions of human cell lines derived from normal and cancerous breast tissues, as well as tissues obtained before and after breast cancer surgery, have been compared by multivariate data analysis methods.

Multi-component medicine made manageable by mass spectrometry

Date: Feb 1, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

The Chinese medicine Deng-Zhan-Sheng-Mai, used to treat stroke patients, consists of a mixture of four different herbal extracts, each containing a wide variety of compounds, thus giving a huge headache to analysts. Researchers from Fudan University, Shanghai and China Pharmaceutical University, Nanjing used LC-MS, along with chemometric methods, such as hierarchical cluster analysis, principal component analysis and bivariate correlation analysis, to bring order to the chaos, recommending that nine...

Biomarkers of breast cancer

Date: Jan 12, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

The success of cancer treatment hinges on the stage at which the disease is detected, making biomarkers that flag up early signs of the disease an important goal for cancer research. Now a group of scientists from the Czech Republic has found a new set of biomarkers for breast cancer based on the levels of lipids expressed by cancer cells.

Journal Highlight: Fractional factorial design based microwave-assisted extraction for the determination of organophosphorus and organochlorine residues in tobacco by using GC/MS

Date: Jan 9, 2017

Author: separationsNOW

Orthogonal array testing was used to screen and optimize multiple microwave-assisted extraction parameters for organophosphorus and organochlorine pesticides in tobacco before GC/MS analysis.

Iranian chemists identify Russian chemical warfare agents

Date: Jan 1, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

All chemical weapons were banned by the Chemical Weapons Convention, but concerns about the possible use of these substances still persist. Writing in Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry, Iranian researchers disclose GC/MS and LC-MS/MS methods for detecting a number of the obscure ‘Novichok’ chemical warfare agents.
