Circular Dichroism “In Your Words”
Thursday, 21 May 2015

Twitter users have been sharing meaningful research studies on circular dichroism. We’ve gathered some of these and listed them below.

Reversed Magnetic Direction at Room Temperature Using Spintronic
Thursday, 29 January 2015

Mass spectroscopy has been widely used as an analytical chemistry method for the study of biomolecules. Today, it is a remarkable leading analytical technique for the characterization of proteins at the intact (native) and peptide levels as well as in the analysis of enzymatically generated protein fragments.

Chiral Polythiophene Study Uses FP8200 Jasco fluorimeter for CPL Measurements
Wednesday, 12 November 2014

A team of researchers from the University of Milan and University of Insubria studied the structural and optical properties of chiral polythiophene using combined CD-electrochemistry, circularly polarized luminescence (CPL) and TD-DFT investigation. CPL experiments using JASCO’s FP8200 fluorescence spectrometer were performed to interpret the polymerization of inherent chirals.

JASCO Analytical Instruments Used in a Physical Chemistry Study
Thursday, 04 September 2014

The Journal of Physical Chemistry C recently published a study entitled, “Helical Sense-Responsive and Substituent-Sensitive Features in Vibrational and Electronic Circular Dichroism, in Circularly Polarized Luminescence, and in Raman Spectra of Some Simple Optically Active Hexahelicenes.”

Heat Shock Factor Binding Protein in Plasmodium Falciparum Study Uses Circular Dichroism
Monday, 14 April 2014

Heat shock binding protein (HSBP) was first discovered in a yeast two-hybrid screen as an intermingling partner of heat shock factor (HSF). It appears to be kept in all eukaryotes studied thus far except in yeast.

Controlling Magnetic Atoms on Graphene
Monday, 09 February 2015

A group of physicists from Switzerland discovered the magnetic properties of cobalt atoms on top of the graphene are controllable using a specific selection of substrate under the graphene sheet. The effect of the substrate on the magnetic properties could be used to construct spintronics devices based on graphene.

CD Spectroscopy Demonstrates Potential of Cyt c Glycosylation
Thursday, 20 November 2014

Researchers from the University of Puerto Rico used circular dischroism (CD) spectroscopy to study the physical and chemical stability of Cytochrome c (Cyt c) in relation to cancer treatment. CD spectra were recorded to substantially measure its protein activity assays.

Researchers Develop DNA Lightswitch for Nano-Optics
Monday, 29 September 2014

A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Ludwig-Maximilian-Universität in Munich and Ohio University in Athens, have developed a DNA light switch for nano-optics. The optical switch was made up of two tiny gold nanorods affixed together by a hinge of DNA strands, which absorb left-handed or right-handed circularly polarized light.

Lac Repressor Headpiece Study Used Circular Dichroism for Nonspecific Interaction Research
Monday, 23 June 2014

Fluorescence and circular dichroism were the main methods used in the research entitled “Nonspecific Interaction of the Lactose (lac) Repressor Headpiece with DNA Flourescence and Circular Dichroism Studies” by J.C. Maurizot. 

Monday, 31 March 2014

A team of scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory recently discovered that strontium titanate (SrTiO3), a nominally nonmagnetic wide-bandgap semiconductor and considered among today’s most important oxide materials.
