The chemicals we leave behind

Identifying chemical footprints

The products we use every day leave behind chemical footprints. Learn how and why researchers are now studying those trails. Mass spectrometry is helping researchers learn more about our interactions with the everyday chemicals we use, such as DEET, caffeine, even medications. In this episode of Speaking of Chemistry, host Manny Morone talks to Pietr Dorrestein and Amina Bouslimani of the University of California, San Diego, California about how the chemicals we all leave behind could be useful in health and forensic science, and whether these chemicals should be cause for concern.
