A liquid chromatographic (LC) method for sensitive and selective fluorometric determination of p-hydroxyphenylethylamino group containing compounds is described. This method is based on an intramolecular excimer-forming fluorescence derivatization with a pyrene reagent, 4-(1-pyrene)butanoyl chloride, followed by reversed-phase LC. The analytes, containing(More)
Liquid chromatography (LC) with fluorescence detection is described for simultaneous determination of native fluorescent bioamines (indoleamines and catecholamines). This is based on intramolecular fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) in an LC system following post-column derivatization of native fluorescent bioamines' amino groups with(More)
In this paper, we introduce a novel approach for the highly selective and sensitive analysis of native fluorescent bioamines (indoleamines and catecholamines). This method is based on intramolecular fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) detection in a liquid chromatography (LC) system following precolumn derivatization of the bioamines' amino(More)
A selective and sensitive fluorometric determination method for native fluorescent peptides has been developed. This method is based on intramolecular fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) detection in a liquid chromatography (LC) system following precolumn derivatization of the amino groups of tryptophan (Trp)-containing peptides. In this detection(More)
Fluorous derivatization followed by fluorous-phase liquid chromatographic (LC) separation exploits the affinity between perfluoroalkyl compounds for highly selective and quantitative isolation of various analytes. However, the applicability of this technique as a simple pretreatment for fluorometric determination in clinical settings has not been fully(More)
A liquid chromatographic (LC) determination of catecholamines and indoleamines is described. This is based on intramolecular excimer-forming fluorescence derivatization with 4-(1-pyrene)butanoyl chloride, followed by reversed-phase LC. The analytes, containing an amino moiety and phenolic hydroxyl moieties in a molecule, were converted to the corresponding(More)
In this paper we introduce a novel approach for highly selective and sensitive analysis of cysteines (glutathione, cysteine, and homocysteine). This method is based on the detection of intramolecular fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) in a liquid chromatography (LC) system after double-labeling of the amino and sulfhydryl groups of the cysteines.(More)
This paper presents a toy model for the representation related phenomena. It is the representation that is always referred to. The represented thing in itself is indeterminate existence at a fundamental level of understanding. In order to capture such property of representation, this paper provides a toy model using an algebraic structure: torsor. The toy(More)
