About The Journal

Journal of Radiolabeled Chemistry (JRC) of Sciforce Publications is an interdisciplinary field of chemistry and medicine. JRC publishes original research articles, book chapters, reviews, letters and short communications, rapid communications, and abstracts. Isotopic labeling is a technique used to track the passage of an isotope, an atom with a detectable variation in neutron count through a reaction, metabolic pathway, or cell. The reactant is labeled by replacing specific atoms by their isotope. The reactant is then allowed to undergo the reaction. The position of the isotopes in the products is measured to determine the sequence the isotopic atom followed in the reaction or the cell's metabolic pathway. The nuclides used in isotopic labeling may be stable nuclides or radionuclides or radioactive atoms. Hence, the labeling is called radiolabeling. In isotopic labeling, there are multiple ways to detect the presence of labeling isotopes, through their mass, vibrational mode, or radioactivity or radioactive decay. Mass spectrometry detects the difference in an isotope's mass, while infrared spectroscopy detects the difference in the isotope's vibrational modes. Nuclear magnetic resonance detects atoms with different gyromagnetic ratios. The radioactive decay can be detected through an ionization chamber or autoradiographs of gels.
