Forensic differentiation of human and animal hair via ATR FT-IR spectroscopy and chemometrics

The difference between a human hair and an animal hair may not be obvious to the naked eye, until it is scrutinized underneath the microscope or by other means. Although it may be rather easy for a

Infrared does more good than bad for the skin: how can we learn from the sun

In the last decade, it has been proposed that the sun’s Infrared (IR) wavelengths might be damaging human skin and that sunscreens, in addition to their desired effect to protect against Ultraviolet (UV), should also protect against
