March 2017 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our 50th issue! In Upfront, poster sessions go digital, researchers discover antimicrobial peptides in dragon saliva, and we discover how ICP-MS is helping students recreate ancient Chinese beer. In our features, Elena Stashenko explores the complex chemistry of Colombia's botanical treasures, and three LIBS gurus ask if the technique is ready to spread its wings. We also have opinion pieces on chemometrics, microcalorimetry and the exposome, and insightful interviews with Ron Heeren and Pauline Rudd.
