Investigating Structure Variation of Electrode Materials for Lithium Ion Batteries

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
Summary: Improving energy density, power density, cycle life and safety and decreasing cost of current Li-ion batteries are highly desirable for the applications of advanced portable electronic devices, electrical tools, electrical vehicles, storage batteries for renewable energy, and stationary batteries for smart grids. Understanding lithium storage mechanism and structure-property relationship across length scales are essential for rational design of new materials. Here we report our...

Diet composition is associated with endogenous formation of N-nitroso compounds in obese men

submitted by: silviagratz
Endogenous formation of carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds (NOC) occurs in the human gut. Red meat is considered the most important dietary component linked to NOC formation, although nitrate and vitamin C (VitC) also contribute. We previously showed that high-protein weight-loss diets increased fecal NOC and this was enhanced by simultaneous carbohydrate restriction. Although previous studies have focused on the effect of either 1 or 2 dietary components on endogenous NOC formation, no...

Separation of Carbohydrates in Pharma & Food Products (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
This webinar highlights the use of high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with Pulsed Amperometric Detection (HPAE-PAD) for the analysis of carbohydrates including mono-, di- and oligo- saccharides. The experts also discuss how this approach is used to characterize large polysaccharies, such as maltodextrin. Focusing on pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and food & beverage matrices, this webinar is of value to anyone looking for a fast, easy and economical way to detect multiple...

More Capabilities for Studies in Metabolomics (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
This webinar demonstrates how ion exchange chromatography (IC) and liquid chromatography coupled to electrochemical detection (LC-EC) can contribute to better understanding the metabolome. Experts present data that can be obtained in metabolomic studies using IC, IC-MS and LC-EC. Speakers: Karl Burgess (Glasgow University, Paul Gamache (Thermo Fisher Scientific) For more information, visit: http://chrom.so/J6cfzw
