A new approach to the determination of human breath acetone with particle-packed sample preparation needle was developed. The extraction needle was packed with a copolymer of methacrylic acid and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as the extraction medium. For the analysis of breath sample, exhaled breath was collected in a sampling bag, and 50 mL of the breath(More)
A novel in-needle extraction device has been developed for the preconcentration of gaseous organic compounds prior to the determination in gas chromatography (GC). As the extraction medium, a copolymer of methacrylic acid and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate was synthesized. Based on the results in the preliminary experiments, the desorption conditions such(More)
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) is a solvent-free sample preparation technique using a thin coating attached to the surface of a fused silica-fiber as the extraction medium, which has been successfully applied to the analysis of a wide variety of compounds by coupling to gas chromatography (GC). In recent years, in-tube SPME using GC capillary column as(More)
Third-hand smoking was quantitatively evaluated with a polymer-packed sample preparation needle and subsequent gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy analysis. The extraction needle was prepared with polymeric particles as the extraction medium, and successful extraction of typical gaseous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) was accomplished with the extraction(More)
A miniaturized sample preparation technique that uses a fine-fiber-packed needle as the extraction medium is reviewed, especially in relation to its application to the analysis of volatile organic compounds by gas chromatography. When the needle was packed longitudinally with a bundle of fine filaments (12 microm o.d.) which were also surface-coated with(More)
A novel in-needle sample preparation device has been developed for the determination of volatile aldehydes in gaseous samples. The needle device is designed for the gas chromatographic (GC) analysis of aldehydes and ketones commonly found in typical in-house environments. In order to prepare the extraction device, a bundle of polymer-coated filaments was(More)
Solid-phase micro-extraction (SPME) followed by high-performance liquid chromatography (LC) has been applied to analyze pesticides in water samples. A device interfaces SPME to the LC injection process by solvent extracting analytes from the fiber and then introducing the solvent into the LC injector. LC analysis with UV detection was performed first with a(More)
An emergency drug screening system for the separation and identification of toxic drugs, MULTI-HPLC, is presented. Chromatographic peaks, which were impossible to identify with a conventional high-performance liquid chromatographic UV detection system, became distinguishable by the spectral search and retention prediction of the data-processing program(More)
Retention behaviors of pyrazine and alkylpyrazines on various stationary phases in reversed-phase liquid chromatography were examined. An abnormal temperature effect on the retention of alkylpyrazines with a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile and water was observed when changing the column temperature. On the other hand, no similar trend was found with(More)
An improved high-performance liquid chromatographic method for separation of a number of ginsenosides has been developed. The influence of temperature (from 0 to 25 degrees C) on the retention and separation of the ginsenosides was studied by applying a binary mobile phase (acetonitrile/water, 82:18 v/v) and a diol column (LiChrospher 100 Diol). The column(More)
