Polymer-based monoliths with zwitterionic surface character were synthesized in capillary columns following a two-step approach to provide versatile electrochromatographic stationary phases exhibiting potentiality of both hydrophilic interaction and RP separation modes. UV-initiated free radical copolymerization of N-acryloxysuccinimide and ethylene(More)
In this study, the supramolecular interactions occurring between beta-cyclodextrin-based surfaces and macromolecular chains modified at one end with naphthyl, adamantyl, or phenyladamantyl hydrophobic groups were investigated by means of a quartz crystal microbalance. beta-Cyclodextrin-functionalized gold electrodes were obtained through the amide-coupling(More)
We present a study aimed at developing a label-free optical fiber biosensor for detection and quantification of biomolecules in real-time. The biosensor based on a Tilted Fiber Bragg Grating (TFBG) transduces a binding event between the probe and target molecules into a change in the refractive index of the medium surrounding the fiber. This work describes(More)
Deep inside planets, extreme density, pressure, and temperature strongly modify the properties of the constituent materials. In particular, how much heat solids can sustain before melting under pressure is key to determining a planet's internal structure and evolution. We report laser-driven shock experiments on fused silica, α-quartz, and stishovite(More)
Macroporous cross-linked organic polymer based on N-acryloxysuccinimide (NAS) and ethylene dimethacrylate (EDMA) was prepared inside 75 µm id fused silica capillary as a functionalizable monolithic stationary phase for chromatographic applications. Succinimide groups on the monolith surface provide reactive sites able to react readily through standard(More)
Homopolymer grafts from α-tert-butoxy-ω-vinylbenzyl-polyglycidol (PGL) were prepared on gold and stainless steel (SS) substrates modified by 4-benzoyl-phenyl (BP) moieties derived from the electroreduction of the parent salt 4-benzoyl benzene diazonium tetrafluoroborate. The grafted BP aryl groups efficiently served to surface-initiate photopolymerization(More)
Experiments in high-energy-density physics often use optical pyrometry to determine temperatures of dynamically compressed materials. In combination with simultaneous shock-velocity and optical-reflectivity measurements using velocity interferometry, these experiments provide accurate equation-of-state data at extreme pressures (P > 1 Mbar) and temperatures(More)
The formation of inclusion complexes between methoxypoly(ethylene glycol)s (MPEG)s bearing one hydrophobic group (phenyladamantyl) per chain and beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) was studied by capillary electrophoresis (CE). The effect of highly sulphated beta-CD (HS-beta-CD) on the migration behaviour of the phenyladamantyl-modified MPEG (MPEG-PhAd) analyte was(More)
We present thermodynamic and neutron scattering data on silver ferrite AgFeO(2). The data imply that strong magnetic frustration Θ/T(N)∼10 and magnetic ordering arise via two successive phase transitions at T(2) = 7 K and T(1) = 16 K. At T<T(2), two metamagnetic phase transitions at B(1)∼14 T and B(2)∼30 T can be identified through the change of slope in(More)
Capillary electrochromatography (CEC) monolithic columns were prepared following a two-step synthetic pathway based on (i) UV-induced in situ radical polymerization of N-acryloxysuccinimide (NAS) and ethylene dimethacrylate (EDMA) and (ii) in situ functionalization of the NAS-containing monolithic matrix with various alkylamines. The first synthetic step(More)
