Analytical Chemistry - Research from China Agricultural University Broadens Understanding of Analytical Chemistry
2012 DEC 20 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Agriculture Week -- Research findings on Analytical Chemistry are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting out of Beijing, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "A semiquantitative strip immunoassay was developed for the rapid detection of imidacloprid and thiamethoxam in agricultural products using specific nanocolloidal gold-labeled monoclonal antibodies. The conjugates of imidacloprid-BSA, thiamethoxam-BSA and goat anti-mouse IgG were coated on the nitro-cellulose membrane of the strip, serving as test lines and control line, respectively. ...read more
Analytical Chemistry - Recent Findings in Analytical Chemistry Described by Researchers from University of Nevada
2012 OCT 4 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Agriculture Week -- Investigators publish new report on Analytical Chemistry. According to news originating from Reno, Nevada, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Studies demonstrate that exposure to steroid hormones in receiving waters can adversely impact reproduction of aquatic organisms. In particular, exogenous steroid hormones widely used as growth promoters in animal agriculture are of high concern, yet no gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC/MS/MS) analytical methods for the detection of these compounds in complex environmental matrices is described in the literature. ...read more
Analytical Chemistry - Reports from State University of Campinas Advance Knowledge in Analytical Chemistry
2012 SEP 13 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Agriculture Week -- Current study results on Analytical Chemistry have been published. According to news reporting originating in Sao Paulo, Brazil, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Lignin is a polymer found in the cell wall of plants and is one of the main obstacles to the implementation of second-generation ethanol production because it confers the recalcitrance of the lignocellulosic material. The recalcitrance of biomass is affected by the amount of lignin, by its monomer composition, and the way the monomers are arranged in the plant cell wall. ...read more
