Aneura pinguis is one of the liverwort species complexes that consist of several cryptic species. Ten samples collected from different regions in Poland are in the focus of our research. Eight of the A. pinguis complex belonging to four cryptic species (A, B, C, E) and two samples of closely related species Aneura maxima were tested for the composition of(More)
SUMMARY Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) has been investigated for identification of bisphenol A (BPA) at ppb levels in biological samples. Initially a limit of detection (LOD) of 600 ppb BPA was established by direct selected-ion monitoring (SIM) GC–MS. Next, standard solutions of BPA and extracts of powdered milk were derivatized with two(More)
This review is devoted to the application of metal complexes as column packings and liquid stationary phases in gas chromatography. Particular attention is paid to the stationary phases with nitrogen-containing functional groups (e.g., amine and ketoimine) and beta-diketonates on the modified silica surface. The review also concerns the results of the(More)
Polycarbonate plastics (PC) containing bisphenol A (BPA) are used for production of bottles for water, containers for storage of food products, bottles for feeding infants, kitchen utensils, and some components of medical equipment. Trace amounts of BPA have been detected in water and food products kept in PC containers. It has been established that BPA can(More)
This work describes some results of identification and determination of bisphenol A (BPA) in powdered milk by applying the gas chromatography. To determine BPA contents in the milk and to reduce the matrix interference associated with the constituents of the powdered milk, we performed the following activities. First, we ultra-centrifuged the dissolved milk(More)
Analysis of trace compounds in complex matrices requires a preliminary step of sample preparation. From among widely used methodologies, microextraction techniques have become increasingly important as they tend towards being environmentally friendly. The needle trap (NT) extraction is a relatively new and promising technique which combines sampling, sample(More)
Specific interactions of aliphatic linear and branched hydrocarbons as well as cyclic and aromatic hydrocarbons with new packings containing chemically bonded complexes of transition metals are studied. The possibility of using these packings to separate these compounds is also discussed. The packings under study contain complexes of Cu(II) and Cr(III)(More)
New macrocyclic stationary chemically bonded phases were synthesized and tested in gas chromatography conditions. The complexes of 1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane with Cu(II) and Co(II) were bonded to the silica support through the (3-chloropropyl)triethoxysilane reactant. The packings obtained were analyzed by diffuse-reflectance ultraviolet-visible(More)
New adsorbents for capillary complexation GC have been proposed. The adsorbents contain free ketoimine groups which enable binding copper(II) and chromium(III) chlorides. The adsorbents obtained have been characterised by elemental analysis, differential scanning calorimetry and electron spin resonance. The specific interactions between the adsorbent and(More)
