High resolution SIMS analysis of arsenic in rice

Abstract:

Determining the distribution of trace elements in biological materials with subcellular resolution is very challenging but vitally important in order to understand their mechanisms of uptake. Rice grain is efficient in the accumulation of arsenic (As) in the grain, potentially posing a severe health risk to millions of people in South-East Asia. The NanoSIMS is a state-of-the-art microscope capable of high resolution chemical imaging (down to 50 nm) and detecting very low elemental concentrat...
