  • The Effect of Feedstocks on InfraRed Blend Measurements

    IR can be a simple, effective way to measure biodiesel blend ratios from a variety of feedstocks BY SANDRA RINTOUL With biodiesel hitting a new production record of 823 million gallons through October and expected to reach 1.28 billion by 2013, more biodiesel will ultimately be blended into our diesel fuel. This boom in production has opened the doors to a number of potential biodiesel ...

  • Prediction of intact nectarine quality using a Vis/NIR portable spectrometer

    A commercial visible-near infrared spectrometer was tested for intact nectarine quality prediction using partial least squares calibrations. Soluble solids content, firmness, fruit weight and colour index were analysed in each fruit. External validation carried out indicated good predictive performance, particularly for soluble solids content and fruit firmness. These parameters are of key ...

  • Investigation of shell aggregate gold nanostructures

    The unique optical properties of noble metal nanostructures have led to an increased interest into their potential uses for various biological applications. For many medical investigations, it would be beneficial to use near infrared (NIR) excitation as well as small gold nanospheres, which can easily reach the cytoplasm and cell nucleus. To fulfil both requirements simultaneously, this paper ...
