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)
Two amino acid-based (leucine and isoleucine) alkenoxy micelle polymers were employed in this study for the separation of multichiral center-bearing beta-blockers, nadolol and labetalol. These polymers include polysodium N-undecenoxy carbonyl-L-leucinate (poly-L-SUCL) and polysodium N-undecenoxy carbonyl-L-isoleucinate (poly-L-SUCIL). Detailed synthesis and(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)
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)
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)
Electrokinetic chromatography (EKC) with poly(sodium undecylenic sulfate) (poly-SUS) is utilized to separate environmental pollutants such as 2-6-ring polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Parameters such as pH, concentration of polymeric surfactants, and the use of organic modifiers were investigated to follow the retention trends of PAHs. A baseline(More)
A stable polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM) coating was investigated for use in open-tubular capillary electrochromatography (o-CEC). In this approach, the PEM consisted of the cationic polymer of a quaternary ammonium salt, poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) and the anionic polymeric surfactant, poly(sodium undecylenic sulfate). Both the cationic and(More)
Open-tubular capillary electrochromatography (OT-CEC) is an alternative approach to conventional CEC. The primary advantage of OT-CEC is the elimination of problems associated with frits and silica particles in conventional CEC. This report is an investigation of the utility of using a polymeric surfactant (molecular micelle) for OT-CEC. In this approach,(More)
In this study, microemulsions of the chiral surfactant polysodium N-undecenoyl-D-valinate (poly-D-SUV) was utilized for enantiomeric separation by investigating two approaches using polymeric chiral surfactant in microemulsion electrokinetic chromatography (MEEKC). In the first approach, poly-D-SUV was used as an emulsifier surfactant along with 1-butanol(More)
In this study, polymers of sodium 10-undecenoyl L-leucinate (SUL) and sodium undecenyl sulfate (SUS) as well as their copolymerized molecular micelles (CoPMMs) were applied in MEKC as pseudostationary phases to separate benzodiazepines and alkyl phenyl ketones. SDS, a common pseudostationary phase used in MEKC, was also used for comparison. The van't Hoff(More)
