MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Gatos Research (LGR), the leader in precision trace gas analyzers, has released a new Isotopic N2O Analyzer that is the first instrument to directly measure 18O and site-specific 15N ratios in trace nitrous oxide (N2O) in air, in addition to measuring the N2O mole fraction. Site-specific 15N refers to the ability to measure delta-15N ratios for both the alpha (delta-15N-alpha) and beta sites (delta-15N-beta) within the nitrous oxide...

Individual atoms of a certain chemical element can be very stubborn when it comes to separation, mainly because techniques rely on a difference in chemical and physical properties – atoms are almost identical in both regards. However, if you peer closely enough into the atoms, there are subtle differences that can have very big effects. These "different" atoms, called isotopes, are heavily relied on in areas of medicine and nuclear energy and now researchers have proposed a novel way...

Seawater circulation pumps hydrogen and boron into the oceanic plates that make up the seafloor, and some of this seawater remains trapped as the plates descend into the mantle at areas called subduction zones. By analyzing samples of submarine volcanic glass near one of these areas, scientists found unexpected changes in isotopes of hydrogen and boron from the deep mantle. They expected to see the isotope "fingerprint" of seawater. But in volcanoes from the Manus Basin they also discovered...

Researchers at the University of Oviedo (Spain) have come up with a way of tagging gunpowder which allows its illegal use to be detected even after it has been detonated. Based on the addition of isotopes, the technique can also be used to track and differentiate between wild fish and those from a fish farm, such as trout and salmon. A new method for tagging and identifying objects, substances and living beings has just been presented in this month's issue of the Analytical Chemistry...
