One of our guest researchers made it to the cover of the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry. Sven Heiles made this insightful image on his research on lipid ion structures and lipid fragments at HFML-FELIX.
Hydrogen, a promising carrier of renewable energy, can be produced by splitting water. Researchers from HFML-FELIX and KU Leuven reveal how water is split by a C60-supported V ion, showcasing the importance of the support in single atom catalysis.
Scientists identified isomeric designer drugs in a sample confiscated by the Amsterdam Police, using a single infrared laser for two-color infrared IR2MS3 experiments. The use of a single laser greatly reduces the experimental complexity of two-color IR2MS3 and enhances its application in fields employing analytical MS.
Researchers demonstrated that Fano structure may also be induced without need of auto-ionization, by dressing the continuum with an ordinary bound state in any atom by a coupling laser. Using multi-photon processes gives complete, ultra-fast control over the interference. The results are published in Nature Communications.
A team of researchers reacted methane with a tantalum cluster catalyst model system and revealed the formation of H2MC dihydride carbides.They used FELICE to characterize the structure of the formed reaction product with IR spectroscopy. The results are published in Angewandte Chemie.
