Two mathematical models with seven and six parameters have been created for use as methods for identification of the optimum mobile phase in chromatographic separations. A series of chromatographic response functions were proposed and implemented in order to assess and validate the models. The assessment was performed on a set of androstane isomers.… (More)
Mobile phase optimization is highly important in planar chromatography. Solvent selection based on experience and chromatographic intuition can be very time consuming when applied to complex mixtures. In these cases, more systematic strategies are needed. This paper presents a new mathematical model for the optimization of the mobile phase composition used… (More)
European cranberrybush (Viburnum opulus L.) fruits are well known for their biological properties, of which some are due to the presence of anthocyanins in the berries. Current literature provides little information concerning these fruits. The stability of anthocyanins from Viburnum opulus fruits, in aqueous and ethanolic extracts, stored under darkness… (More)
Modeling of thin-layer chromatographic separation of androstane isomers to find the optimum mobile phase is described in this paper. The isomers of androstane are present in a variety of samples, so achieving their optimum thin-layer chromatographic separation is very important. A mathematical model was developed and tested. The model takes into account the… (More)
The paper presents a separation study of some steroids isomers by TLC. Optimization of the mobile phase was achieved using " Prisma " , " Simplex " and mathematical models. These models are simple, rapid methods for optimization and many mobile phase compositions can be evaluated simultaneously.
Cornus species fruits are well known as a rich source of antioxidant compounds responsible for their diverse health benefits. The present study aims to investigate the variation of the total antioxidant capacity of Cornelian cherry (Cornus mas L.) fruits during storage, using high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) and two spectrophotometric… (More)
The wine is one of the most consumed drinks over the world, being subjected to falsification or adulteration regarding the variety, vintage, and geographical region. In this study, the influence of different characteristics of wines (type, production year, and origin) on the total phenolic content, total flavonoids content, antioxidant activity, total… (More)
