Arsenic is a very important nonmetal element in the environment and is vitally related to human lives. It is well known that the biological availability and toxicological effects of arsenic compounds depend upon their chemical forms, so it is necessary to detect the species of arsenic in some environmental samples, food, medicine, and body fluids. High(More)
A simple, rapid method was developed using on-line high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-diode array detection (DAD)/electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) to simultaneously analyze multiple bioactive constituents in the extract of Rheum tanguticum Maxim. ex Balf. (Dahuang), a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Many bioactive(More)
Secoisolariciresinol (SECO) is a natural lignan-type phytoestrogen constituent mainly found in flaxseed. It can be metabolized in vivo to mammalian lignans of enterodiol and enterolactone, which have been proven to be effective in relieving menopausal syndrome. Depression is one of the most common symptoms of menopausal syndrome, and is currently treated(More)
Scme certified reference materials (CRMs) were digested and the elemental concentrations were determined by ICP-MS instrument, and the results include not only the trace key elements such as As, Pb, Hg and Cd but also the major components such as Ca, Fe, K, Na etc. The digestion method, the recoveries, and the detection limits are discussed to piove the(More)
Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) combined with Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) has been used for studying characteristic spectrum of molecules in situ in micrograms samples. There are very few report for applying the SERS-TCL method in the study of the effective ingredients of Chinese traditional herbs. Coptis Chinensis France is an often-used(More)
Samples of airborne PM with different size were collected by cascade impactor (Andersen) in Beijing during the Beijing Olympics. Organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) in particles were determined by DRI Model 2001 A t carbon analyzer of USA. PM (56%), OC (55%) and EC (73%) were associated with the fine particle below 2.1 microm. OC and EC account(More)
A method was studied for the analysis of Cr, As, Cd, Hg and Pb in acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer by using ICP-MS. The instrument parameters were optimized and the introduction system was developed systematically. The sample is decomposed by microwave digestion. The digestion condition was optimized concerning digestion system, proportion of acids(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop an HPLC method for content determination of dehydroabietic acid and abietic acid in aqueous alkali extract of Liquidambaris Resina. METHOD The determination was carried out on a DIONEX C18 column (4.6 mm x 250 mm, 5 microm) eluted with acetonitrile and water containing 0.1% acetic acid. The flow rate was 1 mL x min(-1), and the(More)
Size-segregated aerosol samples were collected using Andersen cascade sampler from Sep. 2009 to Aug. 2010 in Xinglong, a regional atmospheric background station. The water-soluble inorganic ions were analyzed by IC. The result showed that the annual concentrations of the total water-soluble inorganic ions were (89.66 +/- 47.66), (54.44 +/- 34.08) and (44.39(More)
To investigate the chemical characteristics and possible sources of trace metals in precipitation of Tangshan, a typical industrial city in Northern China, precipitation samples were collected using an automated wet-only sampler for one year from December 2009 to November 2010 and subjected to chemical analysis using ICP-MS. The results showed that crustal(More)
