A confirmation method for the determination of 18 aromatic amines originating from azo dyes after reductive cleavage was developed. The method is based on the use of high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry with atmospheric-pressure chemical ionization. For the identification of the analytes one precursor ion and two daughter ions(More)
We present a method for discretizing and solving general elliptic partial differential equations on sparse grids employing higher order finite elements. On the one hand, our approach is charactarized by its simplicity. The calculation of the occurring functionals is composed of basic pointwise or unidirectional algorithms. On the other hand, numerical(More)
A liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) method was developed to detect tumor-promoting diterpene esters of the tigliane and ingenane types within plant extracts. Fractionation on a C18 high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) column was followed by MS-MS-multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) using the precursor-->product ion pairs of(More)
Diterpene esters of the phorbol and ingenol types are known to be highly active tumor promoting agents that typically occur in members of the Euphorbiaceae. In the present work, Euphorbia leuconeura, a rare indoor plant, is analyzed for its tumor promoting potential. Latex as well as total leaf extracts exhibited Epstein-Barr-virus (EBV) inducing activity(More)
A new, rapid method for selective extraction of hydroxylated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons metabolites (OH-PAHs) in human urine was developed using an immunosorbent of anti-pyrene antibodies which were encapsulated in a sol-gel glass (SGG) matrix. Resulting chromatograms after immunoextraction of urine samples and HPLC analysis of the extracts were free(More)
