The Kendrick mass defect combined with liquid chromatography quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (LC–QTOF-MS) can offer a variety of benefits to analysts investigating groundwater contamination. The Column spoke to Thomas Borch from Colorado State University in Colorado, USA, about his work in this area to find out more.

The 10th Balaton Symposium on High‑Performance Separation Methods will be held on 2–4 September 2015 at the Hotel Azúr in Siófok, Hungary.

Laser irradiation of blue tattoo ink can create toxic byproducts - including hydrogen cyanide (HCN) - according to new research published by scientists at the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment. Pyrolysis gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (Py–GC–MS) was performed on samples of copper phthalocyanine blue to predict the decomposition products resulting from irradiation, as part of a wider on-going project assessing the safety of tattoo inks.

Researchers revisit arteriovenous profiling - comparing changes in the metabolome of arterial versus venous blood in the diagnosis of disease - using targeted and untargeted LC–MS methods.

The 39th International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography (ISCC) and the 12th GC×GC Symposium held in Fort Worth in Texas, USA, were rousing successes with nearly double the participation of the previous U.S. meetings
