Spectroscopy Spotlight
Solvent-Free Analysis Facilitates Ion Mobility Spectrometry–Mass Spectrometry Research
Solvent-free analysis can make it possible to perform chemical analysis of molecules that are difficult or impossible to solubilize and avoid chemical reactions that change the structure of certain molecules in solution. Spectroscopy recently spoke with Sarah Trimpin, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry at Wayne State University, about her work with solvent-free analysis and imaging mass spectrometry (MS).

Agilent 720/725 ICP-OES.
The best of breed is now even faster, more agile.
Agilent set the standard for ICP-OES performance with our 700 Series, the world's most productive ICP-OES platform. And now, we've taken that industry-leading performance to a new level with faster run times, proven reliability and lower operating costs. View webinar and learn more.

Observing Heterogeneous Catalysts While They Are Working: Operando Raman Spectroscopy
Operando means working, thus, this technique refers to the combination of a characterization study of the surface of a catalyst at the same time that the activity is being monitored. This approach, which permits the simultaneous characterization of both parameters in a single experiment, facilitates uncovering the relationships between structure and activity. Such information is critical to improving the performance and formulation of catalysts. We illustrate the possibilities of operando Raman spectroscopy with four examples. MORE »
