August 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

In Upfront, we analyze ancient teeth for nicotine, dye our hair with blackcurrants, and discover a nerve gas detector made from LEGO. In our cover feature, research scientists from the Met Museum explain their cutting-edge analysis of the world’s most precious artworks. We also get publishing tips from journal editors, revisit our teaching series with Cincinnati’s Anna Donnell, and Sit Down With airport security innovator, Michael Breadmore.
