1. Inductive Micro-Flash Desorption for a Molecular-Level Understanding of Fuel Lubricity
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 5/19/2016
Authors: Kimberly N Urness, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Liquid fuels aboard high-performance aircraft currently fulfill the role of both the propellant and the heat sink for regenerative cooling. The fuels themselves have now reached their thermal capacity for effective cooling, and any additional hea ...

2. Ion trap mobility spectrometry nuisance alarm threshold analysis for illicit narcotics based on environmental background and a ROC-curve approach
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 5/18/2016
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Marcela Najarro Najarro
Abstract: The discriminative potential of an ion trap mobility spectrometer (ITMS) for trace detection of illicit narcotics relative to environmental background was investigated with a receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve framework. The ITMS response o ...

3. Development of Two Fine Particulate Matter Standard Reference Materials (<4 µm and <10 µm) for the Determination of Organic and Inorganic Constituents
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 4/13/2016
Authors: Michele Miller Schantz, Danielle Cleveland, Nathanael A Heckert, John R Kucklick, Stefan D Leigh, Stephen E Long, Jennifer M Lynch, Karen E Murphy, Rabia Oflaz, Adam L Pintar, Barbara J. Porter, Savelas A Rabb, Stacy S Vander-Pol, Stephen Albert Wise, Rolf Louis Zeisler
Abstract: Two new Standard Reference Materials (SRMs), SRM 2786 Fine Particulate Matter (< 4 µm) and SRM 2787 Fine Particulate Matter (< 10 µm) have been developed in support of the US Environmental Protection Agency‰s National Ambient Air Quality Standards fo ...

4. Effects of Heat-treatment on the Stability and Composition of Metabolomic Extracts from the Earthworm Eisenia fetida
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 2/13/2016
Authors: Tracey Beth Schock Schock, Sheri Strickland, Edna J. Steele, Daniel W Bearden
Abstract: Environmental metabolomics studies employing earthworms as sentinels for soil contamination are numerous, but the instability of the metabolite extracts from these organisms has been minimally addressed. This study evaluated the efficacy of adding ...

5. Compositional Analysis of Biomass Reference Materials: Results from an Interlaboratory Study
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 10/29/2015
Authors: David W. Templeton, Edward J. Wolfrum, Katherine E Sharpless, James H Yen
Abstract: Biomass analysis methods are used to compare compositions of different lignocellulosic feedstocks, to measure component balance around unit operations, and to determine yields through biomass to biofuels processes. Four biomass reference materials (R ...

6. In-source collision induced dissociation of inorganic explosives for mass spectrometric signature detection and chemical imaging
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 9/23/2015
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: In-source collision induced dissociation (CID) coupled with laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (LDI-MS) demonstrated the trace detection, bulk quantification, and chemical imaging of inorganic explosives and components. The incorporation o ...

7. The ABCs of Using Standard Reference Materials in the Analysis of Foods and Dietary Supplements: A Practical Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: sp260-181rev1
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 9/16/2015
Authors: Katherine E Sharpless, David Lee Duewer, Katrice A Lippa, Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: Although "nutraceuticals" and "functional foods" seem to be ill-defined terms, both are often used to indicate a food that contains compounds providing benefits beyond basic nutrition, often with the expectation that these compounds are protective ag ...

8. Separation of monosaccharides hydrolyzed from glycoproteins without the need for derivatization
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 5/18/2015
Authors: Mark S Lowenthal, Eric L Kilpatrick, Karen W Phinney
Abstract: Chromatographic separation of monosaccharides hydrolyzed from glycoconjugates or complex, aggregate biomaterials, can be achieved by classic analytical methods without a need for derivatizing the monosaccharide subunits. A simple and sensitive metho ...

9. Trace detection and competitive ionization of erythritol tetranitrate in mixtures using direct analysis in real time mass spectrometry
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 4/9/2015
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: Direct analysis in real time (DART) mass spectrometry was used for trace detection of the nitrate ester explosive, erythritol tetranitrate (ETN), and its sugar alcohol precursor, erythritol. The present investigation revealed the impact of competitiv ...

10. Development of Urine Standard Reference Materials for Metabolites of Organic Chemicals Including Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Phthalates, Phenols, Parabens, and Volatile Organic Compounds
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 4/1/2015
Authors: Michele Miller Schantz, Bruce A Benner Jr, Nathanael A Heckert, Lane C Sander, Katherine E Sharpless, Stacy S Vander-Pol, Stephen Albert Wise
Abstract: Two new Standard Reference Materials (SRMs), SRM 3672 Organic Contaminants in Smokers‰ Urine (Frozen) and SRM 3673 Organic Contaminants in Non-Smokers‰ Urine (Frozen), have been developed in support of studies for assessment of human exposure to sele ...
