The Pd(II)-2,2'-bis(diphenylphosphino)-1,1'-binaphthyl (BINAP)-mediated chiral assembly of thioether-derivatised phthalocyanatomagnesium(II) compounds (MgPc(SR)8, SR is benzylthio (SBz) or benzhydrylthio (Bh)) was formed in toluene and at the toluene/water interface, and investigated by means of UV-Vis absorption and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy(More)
We developed capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) with direct UV detection for determination of ammonium in environmental water samples. Ammonium in the samples was partly converted into ammonia in the alkaline background electrolyte (BGE) during migration and was detected by molecular absorption of ammonia at 190 nm in approximately 7 min. The limit of(More)
239 samples of human breast milk were collected from 36 healthy Japanese women. Selenium content of the samples was determined mainly by highly sensitive fluorometric analysis with 2,3-diaminonaphthalene. The highest selenium content, 247 micrograms/kg, was found on the first day postpartum. The arithmetic mean of selenium content was higher in colostrum (<(More)
Separation and on-line concentration of bisphenol A and three alkylphenols were investigated by micellar electrokinetic chromatography with the anionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulfate. The separation conditions were optimized by the simultaneous addition of the organic solvent and cyclodextrin to the running solution. The separation of hydrophobic(More)
N-Substituted-9-aza-3,6,12,15-tetrathiaheptadecanes having Ph-C-N frameworks (N-R-ATH; R = benzyl (N-Bn-ATH), 4-nitrobenzyl (N-NO2Bn-ATH), and diphenylmethyl (N-Ph2CH-ATH)) were synthesized, and their Ag(i) complexes were structurally characterized. X-Ray crystal structure analyses of [Ag(N-R-ATH)](BF4) (R = Bn and Ph2CH) revealed monomeric(More)
A pyridinium-based task-specific ionic liquid (TSIL) with a monothioether group, [3-TPPy][NTf2], extracted typical class b metal ions, such as Ag(I), Cu(I), Pd(II), and Pt(II), in high selectivity. It was found that the composition ratio of the extracted Ag(I) and Cu(I) species depended on the TSIL concentration, and that TSIL extracted these metal ions(More)
A new thiacrown compound in which the picrylamino group is introduced as the chromogenic group, 4'-picrylaminobenzo-l,4,8,11-tetrathiacyclopentadec-13-ene (4'-PicNHBz-TTCP), has been successfully synthesized and its characteristics as an extracting and spectrophotometric reagent have been examined. This compound (HL) forms ion-pair complexes (M(+)L(-)) with(More)
The separation and on-line concentration of bisphenol A and three alkylphenols were investigated by micellar electrokinetic chromatography with cationic surfactant. Tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide was used as surfactant and the separation conditions were optimized by the addition of the organic solvents and cyclodextrins to the running solution. The(More)
Novel temperature-responsive copolymers of N-isopropylacrylamide and monoaza-tetrathioether derivative, were synthesized for the selective extraction of soft metal ions such as silver(I), copper(I), gold(III) and palladium(II) ion. The ratio between N-isopropylacrylamide group and monoaza-tetrathioether group in the copolymer was determined. The ratio(More)
Analytical conditions of pH, surfactants, and additives were investigated for the simultaneous separation of bisphenol A and alkylphenols by micellar electrokinetic chromatography. Reproducibility of migration time was improved at higher pH (pH 8.0). When five surfactants having linear alkyl chains or four bile salts were used, the separation of hydrophobic(More)
