GC-MS – Highlights
Using Analytical Chemistry To Put an End to Corked Wine
The sound when the cork “pops” out of the bottle is satisfying isn’t it? But what disappointment if at that very first sip the off flavors of a faulty wine hit your tongue. In this article we are going to focus on cork taint, what it is, how analysts detect it and ways to prevent it.
Pyrolysis-GC-MS: A Powerful Tool for Microplastics Analysis
In this article, we explore py-GC-MS, how it can be used in the field of microplastic analysis and the advantages it may offer over traditional methods based on microscopy or spectroscopy.
Petrochemical Applications of GC and GC-MS
This list will give an overview of the key features and benefits of GC-MS along with examples of where and how it is applied in the modern petrochemical industry.
Food Authenticity: Testing To Keep One Step Ahead
Scan the menu in a top-class restaurant and you may encounter premium ingredients that promise an exceptional dining experience. But things aren't always as they appear. What do we really know about such products, other than what the labels would have us believe? Sometimes, surprisingly little.
Fingerprinting Technique Developed To Verify the Geographical Origins of Virgin Olive Oil
Scientists have developed a new authentication tool to check the geographical origin of virgin olive oil as a control on quality and to detect adulteration and fraud.
Keeping Up With the Drive for Microplastics Detection
We spoke to Geoff Winkett and Michel van den Berge from Agilent, about the issues posed by microplastics analyses and how molecular spectroscopy is rising to the challenge.
Wild Strawberry Aroma Obtained From an Unlikely Source
Scientists have come up with a naturally derived wild strawberry aroma by having an edible fungus make it from blackcurrant juice production waste.
Plants Developed That Act as Organic Pollutant Monitors
Researchers have successfully developed plants that can be used to detect organic pollutants, such as polychlorinated biphenyls and endocrine-disrupting chemicals, which contaminate soil and water.
Food Testing and Environmental Analysis
Ensuring food safety and quality is increasingly challenging. Whether you're analyzing for pesticide residues, ensuring that label claims are correct and accurate, or profiling for food authenticity, you need a system that delivers low detection levels and high sensitivity.
Robust & Reproducible Sample Preparation for LC/MS
Porvair Sciences has published an in-depth application report demonstrating how their Microlute® CP Reverse Phase Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) microplates provide a robust and highly reproducible SPE LC-MS sample preparation methodology for a range of neutral, acidic and basic analytes.
