Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

We have applied the wiggle-matching high-precision radiocarbon dating technique to a log recovered from an Early Kofun Period site in western Japan. Using the decadal radiocarbon calibration curves of Stuiver & Becker (1986, Radiocarbon 28(2B), 863-910) on four sequential decades of rings, we determined the cutting date of AD 320 to a precision of +/- 5 years. Remarkably accurate determinations of cutting dates are possible by this method in the right combination of circumstances.
