Analysis of Pesticides in a Hemp Matrix

Hemp is a strain of Cannabis sativa that has multiple industrial uses including paper, plastics, woven goods, and even food. While certain strains of Cannabis sativa are well-known for their use as a recreational drug due the presence of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), hemp strains are defined by the U.S. federal government as those that contain less than 0.3% THC.1 Additionally, hemp strains typically contain more cannabidiol (CBD),2 which was recently approved by the FDA to treat certain types of epilepsy, and is currently being investigated as a medical treatment for other afflictions.

Learning Polymer Materials Analysis from Natural Lacquer (Urushi)

Introduction: In recent years, polymer materials have become more complex due to increased composition and diversification so that a one-sided analysis is insufficient and multifaceted observations and analyses are required. In response to this need, JEOL has engaged in applied research under the keyword of "YOKOGUSHI" (multifaceted cross-instrumental) using various instruments organically. In this Urushi Note, multifaceted analysis methods for polymer materials are illustrated using the examples of natural lacquer (urushi) analysis.

Structural analysis of PET combining an on-plate alkaline degradation method & tandem TOFMS - MSTips 311

We investigated the structural analysis of the polyethylene-terephthalate (PET) polymer exposed to the on-plate alkaline degradation method by using the JMS-S3000 "SpiralTOFTM-plus" with TOF-TOF option. The SpiralTOFTM-plus uses an ultra-high resolution TOF for MS1 which allows monoisotopic precursor selection and a reflectron TOF for MS2 to analyze the product ion spectra produced from high energy collisional induced dissociation (HE-CID).
