 Triacontanol, a long-chain primary alcohol was found to be an effective growth regulator in the micropropagation of balm, Melissa officinalis. In both the multiplication and the rooting phase, concentrations of 2, 5, 10 and 20 μg triacontanol per liter were applied. After 4 weeks of culture, the fresh weight of shoots was measured in the multiplication(More)
The separation of enantiomers of ten chiral arylpropionic acid derivatives was studied on six different polysaccharide-based chiral HPLC columns with various normal-phase eluents. Along with the successful separation of analyte enantiomers, the emphasis of this study was on the effect of the chiral selector and mobile phase composition as well as of the(More)
Photo- and thermal-degradation studies on eccrine fingerprint components are presented herein. Dilute distinct solutions of urea, lactic acid, and seven amino acids were deposited on steel coupons and Teflon disks, exposed to artificial sunlight or heat, extracted, and analyzed. This aim of this study was to determine whether the investigated eccrine(More)
This article reports comparative high-performance liquid chromatographic separations of enantiomers with chiral stationary phases (CSPs) prepared by coating cellulose tris(4-chloro-3-methylphenylcarbamate) on totally porous and on core-shell type silica of comparable particle diameter. Several interesting observations were made: (1) the selectivity of(More)
The separation of basic compounds in high-pH mobile phases results in extended retention, excellent peak shapes and good chromatographic efficiency. A severe decrease in sensitivity with electrospray mass spectrometric detection in positive ion mode (ESI+-MS) is expected under conditions that suppress analyte ionization in solution. We compared the(More)
There is considerable interest in developing dopamine transporter (DAT) inhibitors as potential therapies for the treatment of cocaine abuse. We report herein our pharmacophore-based discovery and molecular modeling-assisted rational design of 2,3-disubstituted quinuclidines as potent DAT inhibitors with a novel chemical scaffold. Through 3-D-database(More)
A series of experiments and measurements demonstrate the importance of minimizing the extra-column band broadening contribution of the instrument used. The combination of several measures allowed the achievement of the full potential efficiency of three Kinetex-C(18) columns, using a conventional liquid chromatograph. The first measure consists in(More)
A variety of complementary evidence reviewed here demonstrates that the packing of chromatographic columns is heterogeneous. It is denser and less well organized close to the column wall than in the center of the column. The mechanism of particle consolidation under stress explains the origin of this phenomenon and provides a fundamental justification to(More)
Three polysaccharide-derived chiral stationary phases (CSP) were evaluated for the resolution of more than 200 racemic compounds of pharmaceutical interest in the reversed-phase (RP) separation mode. The population of test probes was carefully evaluated in order to insure that it covers as completely as possible all structural diversity of chiral(More)
In this study the separation performance of various chiral stationary phases (CSPs) made of polysaccharide-based chiral selectors coated onto superficially porous (core-shell or fused-core) silica supports were evaluated. The CSPs obtained by coating of various amounts of chiral selector (1-5%) onto supports of various pore size (100 and 300 Å) were(More)
