Liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS) was used to identify the concentrations of psychoactive drugs in water and fish from the River Fyris (Uppsala, Sweden) Scientists from Umeå University, Sweden, published the findings in Science earlier this year.1

Thermo Fisher Scientific (California, USA) has announced the formation of a Technology Alliance Partner agreement with the University of Birmingham (Birmingham, UK) to further research in high-resolution accurate mass and triple quadrupole liquid chromatography?mass spectrometry (LC?MS).

Exposure to environmental arsenic (As) is a worldwide issue, especially in locations where rice is the main calorific content in the diet. Eating aromatic rice reduces environmental arsenic intake, according to results published in the journal of Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging using high performance liquid chromatography coupled with inductively coupled plasma?mass spectrometry (HPLC?ICP?MS).

A panel of experts discuss the current state of the art of gas chromatography (GC) column technology and try to predict how the technology will develop in the future.

The Column

Ion chromatography (IC) is an important analysis tool for chromatographers. Typically, emphasis is placed on the hardware components and chemistry to achieve the ideal level of separation. However, the flow path itself is often overlooked, and there are some relatively simple steps that can be taken to ensure that the system's flow path positively affects the overall chromatographic results achieved.
