Using a method called mass spectrometry to identify chemicals, scientists can trap a poison-wielding murderer, pinpoint leaks in the international space station, or deduce the diets of ancient cave-dwellers. A site called i-mass.com is dedicated to mass spectrometry, which uses an electromagnetic field to “weigh” the contents of a sample. Offerings include news briefs gleaned from technical and popular publications, tip-offs to valuable journal articles, links to labs, and the all-important jobs list. A newer site from publisher John Wiley provides similar features but covers all spectroscopy, from infrared to Raman.
