Environmental Methods High Performance GC-TOFMS E-Seminar
On Thursday, March 16, LECO Corporation will host a complimentary e-seminar for the mass spectrometry community at 12:00 pm EST. This e-seminar will be presented by LECO applications chemist Jonathan Byer, PhD, and is titled, “”Exceed the Requirements of Standard Environmental Methods: Perform Target and Non-Target Analysis in a Single Run Using a High Performance GC-TOFMS”.
The e-seminar will evaluate the advantages of full scan data at near SIM detection limits for standard environmental methods and will demonstrate how high performance GC-TOFMS can be used to exceed the specifications of these method requirements. Unique attributes such as spectral deconvolution, target and non-target analysis in a single sample injection, and better-than-nominal mass accuracy will be highlighted. In particular, limits of detection were determined for semi-volatile organic compounds by EPA Method 8270, in drinking water by EPA Method 525.5, and in food commodities for pesticide residue analysis.

How do Forests Respond to Atmospheric Pollution?News
How forests respond to elevated nitrogen levels from atmospheric pollution is not always the same. While a forest is filtering nitrogen as expected, a higher percentage than previously seen is leaving the system again as the potent greenhouse gas nitrous oxide, say researchers.READ MORE
