Xiao Ma, Georges Pavlidis, Eoghan Dillon, Victoria Beltran, Jeffrey Schwartz, Mathieu Thoury, Ferenc Borondics, Christophe Sandt, Kevin Kjoller, Barbara Berrie, Andrea Centrone
The formation and aggregation of metal carboxylates (metal-soaps) can degrade the appearance and integrity of oil paints and frequently poses a challenge to the conservation of painted works of art. Efforts to understand the root cause of metal-soap

Optofluidic Flow Meter for sub-nanoliter per minute flow measurements

January 31, 2022
Author(s)
Jalal Sadeghi, Paul Patrone, Anthony J. Kearsley, Gregory A. Cooksey
Performance improvements in microfluidic systems depend on accurate measurement and control of fluids on the micro- and nanoscale, and new applications are continuously moving the needle to lower volumetric flow rates. This work focuses on improving an

Peak Fraction Purity and Chromatographic Resolution: Gaussian Peaks Revisited

January 19, 2022
Author(s)
Andre Striegel, Deborah Striegel
For incompletely resolved peak pairs, the purity of the chromatographic or fractographic fractions is oftentimes underestimated by the common user. This results in wasted time and effort while trying to achieve higher resolution than needed for the
