Analytical Methods, 2012, Vol. 4, Issue 10, front cover

Front cover: Major et al., Anal. Methods, 2012, 4, 3118-3126

The latest issue of Analytical Methods is now available, and we have three covers this month.

On the front cover, Giulia Mollica, Laurence Charles and colleagues from CNRS, Marseille, France, use solid-state NMR to obtain essential information to understand the molecular origin of changes observed in MALDI mass spectra as a function of experimental conditions used for sample preparation.

On the inside front cover, Luis Alamo-Nole and co-workers at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, USA, present a size-exclusion method that was developed for the separation of thiol-capped Cd(Se,S) quantum dots (QDs) synthesized in the aqueous phase, which is fast and reproducible.

On the back cover, Zhang-Jun Hu and co-authors from Tongji University, Shanghai, China, have fabricated magnetic microspheres which capture lead ions rapidly and selectively from aqueous solution so that facile onsite preconcentration and monitoring of lead ions at trace level is possible.
