A method is described for the analysis of the insecticide imidacloprid [1-(6-chloro-3-pyridylmethyl)-N-nitroimidazolidin-2-ylideneamine] and its metabolite 6-chloronicotinic acid by micellar electrokinetic chromatography with diode-array detection at 270 and 227 nm, respectively. The best results were obtained using sodium dodecyl sulphate at a(More)
A sensitive and inexpensive micellar-enhanced synchronous-derivative spectrofluorimetric method is described for the determination of folic acid in pharmaceutical preparations. The method is based upon derivatization of the vitamin with fluorescamine in acid solution and enhancement of the fluorescence with a surfactant. Linear fluorimetric analytical(More)
The at-line coupling of capillary electrophoresis (CE) and surface-enhanced resonance Raman spectroscopy (SERRS) was optimized for the separation and subsequent spectroscopic identification of charged analytes (dye compounds). Raman spectra were recorded following deposition of the electropherogram onto a moving substrate. To this end a new interface was(More)
A simple, selective and sensitive heavy atom-induced room temperature phosphorimetric method (HAI-RTP) is described for the determination of naproxen (NAP) in pharmaceutical preparations. The phosphorescence signals are a consequence of intermolecular protection when analytes are, exclusively, in presence of a heavy atom salt and sodium sulfite as an oxygen(More)
A test mixture of five phytohormones [naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA), naphthoxyacetic acid (NOA), indoleacetic acid (IAA), indolebutyric acid (IBA), and indolepropionic acid (IPA)] was investigated. These compounds were cleanly separated with good resolution by capillary zone electrophoresis with a UV diode array detector using 20 mM sodium phosphate buffer(More)
This paper presents the characterization of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in solid-surface fluorescence as the first step for obtaining new optical sensors for PAHs screening. The fluorescence properties of the EPA-PAHs (naphthalene, acenaphthene, acenaphthylene, fluorene, phenanthrene, anthracene, fluoranthene, pyrene, chrysene,(More)
A simple spectrofluorimetric analysis of a local anaesthetic named procaine using a specific labelling reagent for primary amino groups, has been developed. Because procaine shows very weak native fluorescence, the technique of spectrofluorimetry has been very much limited for its determination. A detail study of the variables affecting the derivatisation(More)
The applicability of heavy atom induced room temperature phosphorescence in real samples is demonstrated in this work. In this methodology only two reagents, potassium iodide as heavy atom salt and sodium sulphite as oxygen scavenger, were used to obtain phosphorescent signal of propranolol in solution. Thus a new simple, rapid and selective phosphorimetric(More)
A selective and sensitive micelle-stabilized room-temperature phosphorimetric (MS-RTP) method for the determination of naphazoline in pharmaceutical preparations is described. The method is based on obtaining a phosphorescence signal from naphazoline using a micellar agent (sodium dodecyl sulfate), a heavy atom salt (TINO3) and a deoxygenation agent(More)
