Sample Preparation @ separationsNOW

The Sample Preparation channel covers all the techniques used to prepare solids, liquids, gases and suspensions for analysis.

Techniques covered include: liquid-liquid extraction (LLE), solid phase (micro)extraction (SPE/SPME), solid-phase and liquid trapping of gases and headspace sampling.

Chemists from Brazil and Portugal have developed a quick and easy method for extracting biogenic amines from fish and meat products, by simply adding a bit of salt to them.

Chinese scientists have developed a solid‐phase extraction procedure that uses a magnetic graphene composite to extract carcinogenic N‐nitrosamines from cigarette smoke, prior to analysis by liquid chromatography.

Chinese scientists have developed a dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction method with a deep eutectic solvent for extracting five β‐agonists from environmental water samples, prior to analysis by chiral liquid chromatography‐tandem mass spectrometry.

Selected key technologies of the analytical science industry are discussed by Steve Down with reference to burgeoning application areas and the scope for future improvements.

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.

While even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problems generated by sloppy sample preparation, this less "sexy" step between the point at which analytes are transferred from the sample matrix to a form suitable for analysis is often overlooked. Read a free chapter from "Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry " here.
