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 ...
