High resolution secondary ion mass spectrometry analysis of trace elements in cereal grain and roots

Abstract:

This thesis presents information on the subcellular localisation of two important trace elements, selenium and arsenic, in wheat, rice and rice roots for what is believed to be the first time. The general aim of this work was to illustrate the potential of using physical science techniques to solve biological problems. High resolution secondary ion mass spectrometry was undertaken using the CAMECA NanoSIMS50 with a sensitivity down to ppm concentrations and a lateral resolution of less than 1...
