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)
A butylimidazolium bromide surface-confined ionic liquid stationary phase was synthesized in-house. The synthesized phase was investigated for the separation of five peptides (Gly-Tyr, Val-Tyr-Val, leucine enkephalin, methionine enkephalin, and angiotensin-II). The peptides were successfully separated in less than 5 min. The effect of trifluoroacetic acid(More)
The supramolecular complexing properties of cyclodextrins (CDs) have been investigated inside a conducting polymer environment. In this work, we report the synthesis and characterization of a polypyrrole/beta-cyclodextrin (Ppy/beta-CD) film at a glassy carbon (GC) electrode surface. The polypyrrole/beta-cyclodextrin (Ppy/beta-CD) film was prepared by a(More)
This review focuses on the emerging role of sulfated cyclodextrins in the capillary electrophoretic (CE) separation of chiral analytes. Since being introduced as enantioselective agents for CE in 1995, these anionic additives have continued to demonstrate remarkable application universality. The broad spectrum of chiral compounds successfully separated(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)
Heparin, a naturally occuring, polydisperse, polyanionic glycosaminoglycan, was investigated as a chiral selector for capillary zone electrophoresis. Baseline separations were obtained for a variety of underivatized drugs including antimalarials and antihistamines. Analysis was carried out at a pH of 4.5 or 5 using 2% heparin (w/w) in a 10 mM phosphate(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)
A study of the chiral separations of antihistamines, including pheniramine, chlorpheniramine, brompheniramine, carbinoxamine and doxylamine in capillary electrophoresis (CE) was accomplished using heparin as a chiral additive (CA) and phosphate buffer as the background electrolyte. Several factors were shown to affect both the selectivity and the migration(More)
Mixtures of randomly substituted sulfated cyclodextrins (degree of substitution, approximately 7-10) were successfully used as chiral additives for the enantioseparation of 56 compounds of pharmaceutical interest, including anesthetics, antiarrhythmics, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, antihistamines, antihypertensives, antimalarials, relaxants, and(More)
The utility of negatively charged sulfated cyclodextrins (SCD) as chiral additives (CA) in capillary electrophoresis (CE) was studied in the chiral resolution of several compounds of pharmaceutical interest, including catecholamines such as norepinephrine, epinephrine, DOPA and their precursors, phenylalanine, and tyrosine. Experiments were conducted using(More)
