Carrageenan is a high molecular weight sulfated polygalactose extracted from the marine algae and several biological and immunological properties. Carrageenan granuloma induced subcutaneously in guinea pigs has been widely used in connective tissue studies. Carrageenan is also commonly used as an excellent phylogistic agent for inducing experimental edema.(More)
The influence of surfactant hydrocarbon tail on the solute/pseudostationary phase interactions was examined. Four anionic sulfated surfactants with 8-, 9-, 10-, and 11-carbon chains having a polymerizable double bond at the end of the hydrocarbon chain were synthesized and characterized before and after polymerization. The critical micelle concentration(More)
Five thiourea derivative ligands and their Ni(2+) and Cu(2+) complexes have been synthesized. The compounds were screened for their in vitro anti-bacterial activity using Gram-positive bacteria (two different standard strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Enterococcus faecalis, Streptococcus pyogenes, Bacillus cereus) and(More)
An achiral monomeric surfactant (sodium 10-undecenyl sulfate, SUS) and a chiral surfactant (sodium 10-undecenoyl L-leucinate, SUL) were synthesized and polymerized individually to form poly-SUS and poly-SUL. These surfactants were then copolymerized at various molar ratios to produce a variety of copolymerized surfactants (CoPSs), possessing both achiral(More)
Sodium di(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (DOSS) and sodium di(2-ethylhexyl) phosphate (NaDEHP) surfactants, with double alkyl chains and negatively charged headgroups, were characterized using fluorescence quenching, densitometry, and tensiometry techniques to determine their aggregation number, partial specific volume, and critical aggregation concentration.(More)
The effect of hydrocarbon chain length on chemical selectivity in micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC) was investigated using polymeric sulfated surfactants: poly-(sodium 7-octenyl sulfate), poly(sodium 8-nonenyl sulfate), poly(sodium 9-decenyl sulfate), and poly(sodium 10-undecenyl sulfate). Linear solvation energy relationships (LSERs) and free(More)
The feasibility of using a new and more versatile polymeric chiral surfactant, i.e., poly(sodium N-undecenoxy carbonyl-L-leucinate (poly-L-SUCL) is investigated for simultaneous enantioseparation and detection of eight structurally similar beta-blockers with tandem UV and MS detection. Three optimization approaches, i.e., direct infusion-MS, capillary zone(More)
Poly(sodium 10-undecenyl sulfate) (poly-SUS), poly(sodium N-undecenyl leucinate) (poly-SUL) and their five molecular binary mixed micelles with varied SUS:SUL composition were prepared and used as pseudostationary phases in micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC). Linear solvation energy relationships (LSERs) model and free energy of transfer studies(More)
Two cationic gemini surfactants with pyrrolidinium or alkyl ammonium head groups with but-2-yne spacers, but with the same length hydrocarbon chain have been characterized with respect to their aggregation behaviors and separation power as pseudostationary phases (PSPs) for micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC). They were compared with a commonly(More)
