Application of a new hybrid organic-inorganic monolithic column for efficient deoxyribonucleic acid purification.

A new hybrid organic-inorganic monolithic column for efficient deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) extraction was prepared in situ by polymerization of N-(beta-aminoethyl)-gamma-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (AEAPTES) and tetraethoxysilane (TEOS). The main extraction mechanism was based on the Coulombic force between DNA and the amino silica hybrid monolithic column… (More)
