Vibrational spectroscopy will be presented as an important tool in determining the chemical composition of unknown materials and compounds with the goal of reducing or even eliminating the product development cycle. The following topics will be explored: • The product development process • Disassembling and analyzing products • The role of FTIR and Raman microanalysis • Chemical imaging and depth profiling • Identifying unknowns Molecular spectroscopy (infrared and Raman) is among the most powerful tools in the reverse engineering process. Each molecule has a unique infrared and Raman signature providing great specificity in the identification process. The distribution of components can also be determined by collecting area infrared and Raman images of the product in question. Examples will be shown demonstrating the reverse engineering process using infrared and Raman spectroscopy, including a live demonstration. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples of interest for analysis.

It seems like every other day there’s another story in the news about a researcher manipulating data or otherwise misleading the scientific community and the public. Even though the vast majority of researchers are ethical and do their due diligence, institutions and publishers are intensifying their efforts to prevent the fraud and honest or rookie mistakes that can derail researchers’ careers. Still, though, many scientists have a hard time distinguishing between, for example, acceptable and unacceptable enhancements to manuscript figures. The Journal of Biological Chemistry presents a discussion about what the JBC editors look for when it comes to data analysis and reporting.
