21. Nanoscale Specific Heat Capacity Measurements Using Optoelectronic Bilayer Microcantilevers
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: Brian G. (Brian Gregory) Burke, William A Osborn, Richard Swift Gates, David A LaVan
Abstract: We describe a new technique for optically and electrically detecting and heating bilayer microcantilevers (Pt−SiNx) to high temperatures at fast heating rates for nanoscale specific heat capacity measurements. The bilayer microcantilever acts s ...

22. East versus West: Organic Contaminant Differences in Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) Eggs from South Carolina, USA and the Gulf of California, Mexico
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: Stacy S Vander-Pol, Daniel W. Anderson, Patrick G. R. Jodice, Joyce E. Stuckey
Abstract: Brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) were listed as endangered in the United States in 1970, largely due to reproductive failure and mortality caused by organochlorine contaminants, such as DDT. The southeast population, P.o. carolinensis, was del ...

23. Radio-microanalytical particle measurements method and application to Fukushima aerosols collected in Japan
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 8/26/2012
Authors: Cynthia J Zeissler, Lawrence Forsley, Richard Mark Lindstrom, Sean Newsome, Adrean Kirk, P.A. Mosier-Boss
Abstract: A nondestructive analytical method based on autoradiography and gamma spectrometry was developed to perform activity distribution analysis for particulate samples. This was applied to aerosols collected in Fukushima Japan, 40 km north of the Daiich ...

24. SEABIRD TISSUE ARCHIVAL AND MONITORING PROJECT: Egg Collections and Analytical Results for 2006-2009
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7872
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 8/2/2012
Authors: Stacy S Vander-Pol, Paul R Becker, Sylvain Berail, Russell D Day, Olivier F. X. Donard, Keith A. Hobson, Amanda J Moors, Rebecca S Pugh, Lauren B. Rust, David G. Roseneau
Abstract: Since 1999, the Seabird Tissue Archival and Monitoring Project (STAMP) has collected, banked, and analyzed seabird eggs using established protocols to monitor chlorinated pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), brominated flame retardants, ...

25. Cold Neutron Activation Analysis, a Nondestructive Technique for Hydrogen Level Assessment in Zirconium Alloys
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 6/1/2012
Authors: Rick L Paul, Adrien Couet, Arthur Motta, Robert Comstock
Abstract: We propose a novel use of a non-destructive technique to quantitatively assess hydrogen concentration in zirconium alloys. The technique, called Cold Neutron Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis (CNPGAA), is based on measuring prompt gamma rays following ...

26. Environmental Metabolomics
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 3/15/2012
Author: Daniel W Bearden
Abstract: The application of metabolomics in the field of environmental science or ecology, which has developed based substantially on NMR spectroscopic approaches, is a fast paced, rapidly developing field which seems to be poised to help re-frame the discu ...

27. State-of-the-Art Comparability of Corrected Emission Spectra-Part II: Peer-toPeer Assessment of Calibration Performance Using Spectral Fluorescence Standards
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 2/28/2012
Authors: Paul C DeRose, Joanne C Zwinkels, Bernd Ebert
Abstract: The tremendous growth of fluorescence applications in the life and material sciences has proceeded largely without sufficient concern for the reliability and uncertainties related to the characterization and performance validation of fluorescence ins ...

28. Measurements and Modeling Study on a High-Aromatic Diesel Fuel
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/31/2012
Authors: Bret Windom, Marcia L Huber, Thomas J Bruno, A L Lown, C T Lira
Abstract: The increasing cost of diesel fuel, potential for supply disruptions, and environmental concerns have resulted in a great deal of research to improve the performance and efficiency of diesel engines. This includes significant efforts in the reformul ...

29. Predictive Gold Nanocluster Formation Controlled by Metal-Ligand Complexes
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/9/2012
Authors: John M Pettibone, Jeffrey W Hudgens
Abstract: The formation of ligand-protected transition metal nanoclusters in size-selective syntheses is driven by the inherent properties of the protecting ligands. We have previously reported the selective, monodisperse product formation of phosphine protect ...

30. Comparison of Diesel Fuel Oxygenates with Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Method Part 4: Alcohols, Aldehydes, and Butanoic Acid
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/2/2012
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Jessica Lynne Burger, Evgenii Baibourine
Abstract: There is a great deal of interest in formulating oxygenated diesel fuels that produce low particulate emissions. In this paper, the fourth in a series of papers on the properties of mixtures of diesel fuel with oxygenating additives, we present the ...
