This paper describes a new infrared (IR) sensing scheme for the determination of arginine (Arg). In this method, the surface of an IR evanescent wave sensing element was modified with sulfonic acid groups to selectively interact with Arg through specific interactions with its guanidine moiety. The sulfonated sensing phase was prepared using a two-layer(More)
The steady diffusioosmotic and electroosmotic flows of an electrolyte solution in the fibrous porous medium constructed by a homogeneous array of parallel charged circular cylinders are analyzed under conditions of small Peclet and Reynolds numbers. The imposed electrolyte concentration gradient or electric field is constant and can be oriented arbitrarily(More)
The diffusiophoretic motion of a polyelectrolyte molecule or charged floc in an unbounded solution of a symmetrically charged electrolyte with a uniform prescribed concentration gradient is analytically studied. The model used for the particle is a porous sphere in which the density of the hydrodynamic frictional segments, and therefore also that of the(More)
The diffusiophoresis in a homogeneous suspension of identical dielectric spheres with an arbitrary thickness of the electric double layers in a solution of a symmetrically charged electrolyte with a constant imposed concentration gradient is analytically studied. The effects of particle interactions (or particle volume fraction) are taken into account by(More)
We have developed an on-line sensing method for the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in contaminated aqueous solutions by combining a microporous hollow fiber membrane with an infrared (IR) sensing system. Polypropylene microporous hollow fibers were used to separate the VOCs from the aqueous solution into the hollow fibers, which were purged(More)
