The JRC released a new batch of a certified reference material (CRM) - ERM®-EF318k - consisting of gas oil that contains the Euromarker Solvent Yellow 124 to prevent taxation fraud. This CRM is highly requested, as it is essential for checking the proper use of energy fuel products within the European Union.

According to Council Directive 95/60/EC , all gas oil and kerosene products in Europe are taxed at a rate different from those used as propellants.

JRC scientists have developed methods for the in-depth characterization of multi-functionalized gold nanoparticles. This will support the development of advanced nanomaterials for health applications.

Multi-functionalized nanoparticles are of great interest for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. However, at the moment the characterization of complex, multifunctional nanoparticles is still challenging and this hampers the development of these advanced materials for health applications.
