Chemical characterization of complex surfaces being honored by the Publisher of RCMS.
Successful collaborative working between PhLAM and PC2A laboratories through the CERLA made the Rapid Commun. Mass Spectrom. journal cover in July 2018 with the article entitled A comprehensive protocol for chemical analysis of flame combustion emissions by Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry by Cornelia Irimiea et al. (DOI:10.1002/rcm.8133), which describes the implementation of a robust protocol for chemical characterization of compounds adsorbed on soot particles, without pre-treatment or destruction of the sample. This work was supported by the Labex CaPPA, CPER CLIMIBIO and the European project H2020 PEMS4Nano.
