Issue 7 online: themed issue on Nanoanalysis

JAAS, 2012, Issue 7, front cover

Front cover: Nischwitz & Goenaga-Infante, J. Anal. At. Spectrom., 2012, 27, 1084-1092

The latest issue of JAAS is now online, which is a themed issue on Nanoanalysis. Guest Edited by Petra Krystek, Zoltán Mester and Kay Niemax, this themed issue highlights an important area of atomic spectrometry. May Copsey and I introduce the issue on behalf of the Guest Editors in an Editorial:

A snapshot of atomic and elemental analysis on the nanoscale
May Copsey and Vibhuti Patel
J. Anal. At. Spectrom., 2012, 27, 1049-1049
DOI: 10.1039/C2JA90038F

The front cover features a paper from Volker Nischwitz and Heidi Goenaga-Infante, which presents the first systematic comparison and optimisation of extraction methods for the characterisation of titanium dioxide nanoparticles in sunscreens using FFF-ICP-MS.

Improved sample preparation and quality control for the characterisation of titanium dioxide nanoparticles in sunscreens using flow field flow fractionation on-line with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
