Foiling Fiddled Data - Molecular Matters

Michael Edmonds Jun 26, 2013

Synthetic chemists produce new compounds by reacting various starting materials and/or reagents together. In order to determine the structure of what she has made, the chemist must run a series of analyses, which not only prove the compound has the structure she claims to have made, but also that it is present in pure form. These analyses include mass spectrometry, … Read More
