Some aspects of the matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) method in the analysis of hemoglobin from whole human blood are described. These aspects are: sensitivity of this method, fragmentation of hemoglobin ions, and influence of some impurities (sodium chloride NaCl, sodium sulfate Na2SO4, and potassium ferrocyanide K4Fe(CN)6) on the(More)
We report the results of experimental studies on the effects of sample supports in laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (LDI-MS). LDI time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectra obtained for C(60) and insulin samples deposited onto standard stainless steel substrate and/or onto some non-metallic materials (glass, scotch tape, floppy disc foil, Teflon foil,(More)
Syntheses and antimicrobial activity of 3-alkoxymethyl-1-ethyl-, 3-alkylthiomethyl-1-ethyl-, 3-alkoxymethyl-1-butyl-, and 3-alkylthiomethyl-1-butylbenzimidazolium chlorides are described. The compounds were obtained by reaction of 1-ethyl- or 1-butylbenzimidazole with chloromethylalkyl ethers or chloromethylalkyl sulfide. Antibacterial properties were(More)
The synthesis of quaternary imidazolium chlorides was performed by reaction of 1-n-hexyl-2-phenyl-imidazole with chloromethylalkyl ether or chlormethylalkyl sulfide. The antibacterial properties of the compounds obtained was tested on 13 strains of bacteria and fungi. Chlorides with octyl- and decylthiomethyl moiety indicated the best antibacterial activity.

The effect of laser exposure (the number of laser shots) on the stability of production of matrix (gentisic acid, sinapinic acid, nicotinic acid and benzoic acid) and biomolecule (insulin and cytochrome-c) ions is presented. Two methods of sample preparation, dried-droplet and pressure, were examined. In the case of pressure preparation, the dry powder(More)
