Oregon Chemists Moving Forward With Tool to Detect Hydrogen Sulfide


June 24, 2013

Leticia Montoya and Michael Pluth University of Oregon chemists have developed a selective probe that detects hydrogen sulfide (H2S) levels as low as 190 nanomolar (10 parts per billion) in biological samples. The chemists say the technique could serve as a new tool for basic biological research and as an enhanced detection system for H2S in suspected bacterially contaminated water sources. Full Story
