Quantification of the sources and composition of particulate matter by field-deployable mass spectrometry: implications for air quality and public health
Aerosol mass spectrometry has become an indispensable technique for characterizing the chemistry of one of the world's deadliest air pollutants.
Applications of vibrational tags in biological imaging by Raman microscopy
In this article, we review the recent successful applications of SRS and vibrational tags for solving biological problems.
A ratiometric Raman probe for live-cell imaging of hydrogen sulfide in mitochondria by stimulated Raman scattering
We develop a ratiometric Raman probe for visualizing hydrogen sulfide in living cells as the first alkyne-based sensor for SRS microscopy.
About this collection
Collection of papers authored by winners of the Analyst Emerging Investigator Lectureship. This lectureship was established in 2016 and recognises early career researchers, within 10 years of their PhD, who have made a significant contribution to analytical chemistry, in their independent academic career.
2018 Winner profile: Wei Min is a Professor at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Columbia, USA. Dr. Wei Min graduated from Peking University with a Bachelor's degree of Chemistry in 2003. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2008 studying single-molecule biophysics with Prof. Sunney Xie. After continuing his postdoctoral work in Xie group, Dr. Min joined the faculty of Department of Chemistry at Columbia University in 2010, and is promoted to Full Professor there in 2017. He is also affiliated with the Kavli Institute for Brain Science and NeuroTechnology Center at Columbia University. Dr. Min's current research interests focus on developing novel optical spectroscopy and microscopy technology to address biomedical problems. In particular, his group has made important contributions to the development of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy and its broad application in biomedical imaging including bioorthogonal chemical imaging of small molecules and super-multiplex vibrational imaging. Dr. Min's contribution has been recognized by a number of honors, including Coblentz Award of Molecular Spectroscopy (2017), the ACS Early Career Award in Experimental Physical Chemistry (2017), Buck-Whitney Award of American Chemical Society (2015), Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award (2015), George Fraenkel Fund Award (2014), Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship (2013), NIH Director's New Innovator Award (2012) and Faculty Finalist of Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists of the New York Academy of Sciences (2012).For more information about Professor Min’s research please visit his homepage.
