On-Line Coupling Of Capillary Electrophoresis And Liquid Chromatography With Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry For Protein Characterization , Liyu Yang

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

On-line coupling of capillary isoelectric focusing (CIEF) and liquid chromatography (LC) with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESIMS) is utilized for protein characterization;A microdialysis junction, based on a microdialysis membrane connecting both a separation capillary and a short, sharply tapered microelectrospray emitter capillary, is demonstrated for CIEF-ESIMS. Besides the electrical connection across the microdialysis junction, post-run acidification via the dialysis membrane is demonstrated for enhancing the protonation and the ionization efficiency of focused proteins while maintaining separation efficiency, resolution, and sensitivity in CIEF-ESIMS;On-line combination of CIEF with ESI-FTICRMS is demonstrated for high resolution analysis of model proteins, human hemoglobin ...

Addition of a novel anionic surfactant, namely lauryl polyoxyethylene sulfate, to an aqueous-acetonitrile electrolyte makes it possible to separate nonionic organic compounds by capillary electrophoresis. Separation is based on differences in the association between analytes and the surfactant. Highly hydrophobic compounds such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons are well separated by this new surfactant. Migration times of analytes can be readily changed over an unusually large range by varying the additive concentration and the proportion of acetonitrile in the electrolyte. Several examples are given, including the separation of four methylbenz (a) anthracene isomers and the separation of normal and deuterated acetophenone;The ...
