April 2017 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our April issue! In Upfront, we show how fingerprint biomarkers shed light on a controversial novelist’s final days, offer up fast food with a side of fluoroalkyls and give you a taste of the world’s smelliest fruit. Scientists sniff out the smell of death (and life) in our cover feature, while Suhas Nawada explains how 3D printing could help make 3D-LC a reality. The second part of our ‘Joining Forces’ series takes on novel psychoactive substances in the cloud, and we Sit Down With Texas titan, Kevin Schug.
