Ultrasensitive Crystal Probe
A novel laser-based method can detect nucleation and onset of crystallization of chiral compounds up to 100 million times more sensitively than conventional detection methods, according to researchers at Purdue University who developed the technique (Anal. Chem., DOI: 10.1021/ac100564f). The procedure provides an exceptionally sensitive way to probe nucleation and growth kinetics at the earliest stages of crystal . . .
