Ionic substances with melting points at or close to room temperature are referred to as ionic liquids. Interest in ionic liquids for their potential in different chemical processes is increasing, because they are environmentally benign and are good solvents for a wide range of both organic and inorganic materials. In this study, a capillary electrophoretic(More)
Various Brassica species accumulate Se into the thousands of ppm. This suggests some of them as candidates for Se phytoremediation. Brassica juncea (Indian mustard) was used to accumulate selenium by growing with sodium selenite as the selenium source under hydroponic conditions resulting in Se accumulation of up to hundreds of ppm in various parts of the(More)
The development of on-line sample stacking techniques for enhancing limits of detection of neutral analytes in micellar capillary electrophoresis (MCE) has recently gained much attention. Utilizing high-conductivity sample matrices to invoke sample stacking is promising, but requires the limited use of sample solubilizing agents such as alcohols in the(More)
Previously, a new HPLC stationary phase based on n-butylimidazolium bromide was investigated using a linear solvation energy relationship (LSER) to systematically evaluate the intermolecular interactions between 32 test solutes and the stationary phase. The results and further comparisons with conventional reversed phase systems revealed that retention(More)
A capillary electrophoretic method for resolving phenolic compounds found in grape seed extracts was developed using a quaternary ammonium salt as the main electrolyte solution. Seven polyphenols were separated and identified. The separation mechanism seems to involve association between quaternary ammonium cations and the polyphenols. Migration times(More)
A study comparing the electrophoretic separation performance attainable from microchips molded by masters fabricated using conventional CNC machining techniques with commercial microchips, wire imprinted microchips, and microchips from LIGA molding devices is presented. An electrophoresis-based detection system using fluorescence microscopy was used to(More)
Cyclodextrins have been used extensively in separation science because they have been shown to discriminate between positional isomers, functional groups, homologues and enantiomers. This property makes them one of the most useful agents for a wide variety of separations. The main goal of this review is a discussion of somewhat more exotic applications of(More)
High-index oils are critical to the performance of optical electrowetting devices, such as lenses, prisms, and retroreflectors. Herein, the preparation and electrowetting analysis of 1-chloronaphthalene are reported. When 1-chloronaphthalene is mixed with small amounts of an alkane, the following properties can be achieved: refractive index > 1.60,(More)
Circular dichroism (CD) and UV/Visible absorption (UV/Vis) spectroscopy techniques were used to investigate the interaction between heparin and chloroquine, an antimalarial drug that has shown potential as an anti-prion agent. CD spectra of rac-chloroquine upon addition of heparin provide evidence of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) binding, support recent findings(More)
The main goal of this review is to provide a brief overview of chiral separations to researchers who are versed in the area of analytical separations but unfamiliar with chiral separations. To researchers who are not familiar with this area, there is currently a bewildering array of commercially available chiral columns, chiral derivatizing reagents, and(More)
