Based on a survey of the literature on pretreatment of fused silica capillaries, 3 etching procedures and 11 silanization protocols based on the vinylic silane 3-((trimethoxysilyl)propyl) methacrylate (gamma-MAPS) were found to be most representative as a means of ensuring attachment of in situ prepared vinylic polymers. These techniques were applied to(More)
A set of monolithic stationary phases representing a broad span of monomers and porogens have been characterized directly in their capillary chromatographic format by computational assessment of their pore structure from transmission electron micrographs obtained after in situ embedment of the monoliths in contrast resin, followed by dissolution of the(More)
The aim of the investigations was to develop analytical methods for the determination of selected volatile and non-volatile organic compounds numbering among the final products of milk fermentation. The analyzed compounds were as follows: biacetyl and carboxylic acids (formic, acetic, citric, and lactic). The model yogurt was prepared under controlled(More)
The importance of monolithic (continuous) beds is connected with their easy preparation and the far-reaching possibilities of modification of their surface and porous properties. These properties make them particularly attractive for the analysis of biologically important compounds characterized by a wide spectrum of physicochemical properties. This review(More)
Macroporous poly(styrene-divinylbenzene) monolithic columns were prepared in fused silica capillaries of 100 microm id by in-situ copolymerization of styrene with divinylbenzene in the presence of propan-1-ol and formamide as the porogen system. The monoliths were subsequently alkylated with linear alkyl C-18 groups via Friedel-Crafts reaction to improve(More)
Initiation of atom-transfer radical polymerization of a number of monomers (styrene, methyl acrylate, 3-[N,N-dimethyl-N-(methacryloyloxyethyl)ammonium] propanesulfonate, butyl methacrylate, 2,3-epoxypropyl methacrylate) directly from chlorinated porous silica particles has been performed. The grafting has been confirmed and evaluated by Fourier transform(More)
Polymeric monolithic capillary columns were synthesized using butyl methacrylate (BMA), ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EDMA), and 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropanesulfonic acid (AMPS) as monomers and 1,4-butanediol, 1-propanol, and water as a porogen mixture. The synthesis was performed over a wide temperature range from -15 degrees C to +70 degrees C using UV(More)
A control algorithm designed to increase the economic performance of the air/water heat pump is described. The heat pump itself has very fast dynamics when compared with the heated object; therefore the controller uses static pump modeling to derive the control action. The algorithm controls the compressor in order to stabilize the temperature of water(More)
