New ‚atomic bomb‘ test can detect vintage fraud

by Maggie Rosen – Radioactive carbon dioxide can help detect vintage fraud, Australian scientists say. In a study presented to the American Chemical Society meeting in San Francisco this week, Dr Graham Jones of the University of Adelaide showed that measuring the amount of C-14 – or radiocarbon – in a wine can help determine whether it is really from the vintage stated on the label.

Between the 1940s and 1960s, atomic testing released C-14 into the atmosphere, which has since been diluted by CO2 from burning fossil fuels.
