August 2022 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Find out how analytical scientists safeguard against improvised explosives, new psychoactive compounds, and even chemical warfare agents in this month’s forensics feature. In My View covers the snowballing microplastics issue, as well as academic integrity and peer review. Elsewhere, Caroline West casts a critical eye over the current state of supercritical fluid chromatography, Rick Yost shares his thoughts on the evolution of ion mobility spectrometry–mass spectrometry, and Juergen Popp discusses recent developments in IR spectroscopy. Last but not least, we Sit Down With Tony Edge, Site Director (Production and R&D) at Avantor Sciences, UK.
