Hydropyrolysis as a preparative technique for compound-specific carbon Isotope ratio measurement of endogenous steroids
Project Title: Hydropyrolysis as a preparative technique for compound-specific carbon isotope ratio measurement of endogenous steroids
Researchers: M. Sephton (Imperial College, London, UK), C. Snape (University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK)
Year accepted: 2007
Summary: Hydropyrolysis is a newly-applied catalytic technique that delicately strips molecules of their chemically aggressive parts but retains the carbon skeleton intact, allowing easy detection of the carbon source. Free from conventional analytical problems, the new detection system will allow scientists to pinpoint banned substances in an athlete’s system more accurately.
