  • Detecting counterfeit coconut water using Renishaw’s inVia™ Raman microscope

    Paul Richardson from the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology Coconut water has seen a recent boom in popularity. It is a very lucrative market, with London, England, being the biggest consumer of coconut water in the world (per head). With only five countries in the world supplying the majority of coconut water to the West, this surge in popularity, and resulting imbalance between supply and demand, has led to criminal activity in the supply chain

  • Renishaw technology used to identify microplastics in the environment

    Using the inVia Raman microscope to study microplastics Microplastics are small, hard-to-spot, particles that make their way—from products and packaging—into the environment and cause significant pollution. The Danish Technological Institute (DTI, Aarhus, Denmark) is using a Renishaw Raman spectroscopy system to characterise the extent of microplastic pollution entering Danish wastewater and rainwater systems.

  • 'Raman-spectrokinetics' for improved solid catalysts
