The ability to accurately quantitate trace pesticides and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) by excitation–emission matrix (EEM) fluorescence spectroscopy, when coupled with parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) deconvolution of the EEM spectra, is demonstrated and discussed. Two EEM fluorometers were investigated. One fluorometer, using a cuvette cell(More)
Monosaccharide analysis by high pH anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC/PAD) was used to identify the glycopeptides in the reversed-phase (RP-HPLC) separation of a bovine fetuin tryptic digest (1.6 nmol). This method, requiring no sample derivatization, identified four asparagine-linked (N-linked) glycopeptides and at(More)
A Hamiltonian/Lagrangian theory to describe guiding center orbit drift motion that is canonical in Boozer magnetic coordinates is developed to include full electrostatic and electromagnetic perturbed fields in axisymmetric tokamak geometry. Furthermore, the radial component of the equilibrium magnetic field in the covariant representation is retained and(More)
Independently emerging fluorescence profiles of unknown, photochemically induced degradation products of several naturally non-fluorescent pesticides were monitored using single exposure excitation-emission fluorescence spectroscopy. Three-way parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) was employed to uniquely resolve the pure fluorescent spectra of the overlapping(More)
