November 2017 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our November issue! In Upfront, we discover how fingerprints could be the key to drug detection, look at thermoconductivity at an atomic level, and find out how GC-MS helped age a whisky in six days. In Features we meet the team behind μPAC technology team PharmaFluidics, and delve into our planet’s history with Kirsty Penkman. In My Views tackle clinical applications and reproducibility, and finally, We Sit Down With Power list superstar, Gert Desmet, who tells us about his dreams – and why he loves pushing things to the limits…
