Acidity Studies Of Deuterated Acids And Bases Commonly Used As Buffers In Nmr Studies, Rose M. Mcconnell, Walter E. Godwin, Brant Stanley, M. Shane Green

Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science

Structure based drug development is currently considered to be an important strategy for drug discovery. This strategy requires that critical knowledge of the three dimensional binding site on receptor molecules be known. NMR studies are frequently employed to ascertain important structural data on individual proteins as well as complexes of proteins with ligands. Deuterium labeled acids and bases are frequently used as buffers in deuterium oxide solutions for NMR studies on the structural conformations of bioactive molecules. Since pH is an important factor in any study of the conformational and stereochemical aspects of biologically active molecules, deuterated buffers are an ...


Novel Materials And Methods For Solid-Phase Extraction And High-Performance Liquid Chromatography , Dianna Lynn Ambrose Jan 1997

Novel Materials And Methods For Solid-Phase Extraction And High-Performance Liquid Chromatography , Dianna Lynn Ambrose

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Solid-phase extraction (SPE) is one of the most popular sample preparation techniques for the isolation and preconcentration of organic compounds from aqueous samples. Modified porous polystyrene-divinylbenzene (PS-DVB) resins containing polar groups are superior for SPE of organic solutes from aqueous samples. These modified resins display excellent surface hydrophilicity and improved extraction efficiencies. Silicalite is a hydrophobic molecular sieve with an unusual crystal structure. Because of its unique structure, Silicalite adsorbs organic analytes from aqueous samples due to hydrophobic interactions;The ability of Silicalite and a lightly sulfonated PS-DVB resin to extract various organic test compounds from aqueous samples was compared ...


Electrochemically-Modulated Liquid Chromatography (Emlc): Column Design, Retention Processes, And Applications , En-Yi Ting Jan 1997

Electrochemically-Modulated Liquid Chromatography (Emlc): Column Design, Retention Processes, And Applications , En-Yi Ting

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation explores a new separation technique, electrochemically modulated liquid chromatography (EMLC), from the column design, retention processes, to the pharmaceutical applications. A literature review, general summary, and perspectives of this technique are also described. Chapter 1 presents the newly designed EMLC column. The principal modification of this design is to connect the porous stainless steel column as counter electrode as opposed to part of working electrode in the previous design. The improvement in performance from this modification results in a shorter response time to changes in applied potential (E appl) and a better control of E appl at cathodic ...
