Abstract: The different ways of describing peak positions on gas chromatograms are reviewed. The retention index is preferred to the theoretical nonane system and the relative retention. The equation given by Kovats for the calculation of the retention index in case of isothermal operation is transformed to a more general form to include also the case of linear temperature programmed operation. This generalized equation gives the same retention index for both ways of operation. more

Abstract: A new microextraction technique termed dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) was developed. DLLME is a very simple and rapid method for extraction and preconcentration of organic compounds from water samples. In this method, the appropriate mixture of extraction solvent (8.0 microL C2Cl4) and disperser solvent (1.00 mL acetone) are injected into the aqueous sample (5.00 mL) by syringe, rapidly. Therefore, cloudy solution is formed. In fact, it is consisted of fine particles of extraction solvent which is dispersed entirely into aqueous phase. After centrifuging, the fine particles of extraction solvent are sedimented in the bottom of the conical test tube (5.0 +/- 0.2 microL). The performance of DLLME is illustrated with the determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in water samples by using gas chromatography-flame ionization detection (GC-FID). Some important parameters, such as kind of extraction and disperser solvent and volume of them, and extraction time were investigated. Under the optimum conditions the enrichment factor ranged from 603 to 1113 and the recovery ranged from 60.3 to 111.3%. The linear range was 0.02-200 microg/L (four orders of magnitude) and limit of detection was 0.007-0.030 microg/L for most of analytes. The relative standard deviations (RSDs) for 2 microg/L of PAHs in water by using internal standard were in the range 1.4-10.2% (n = 5). The recoveries of PAHs from surface water at spiking level of 5.0 microg/L were 82.0-111.0%. The ability of DLLME technique in the extraction of other organic compounds such as organochlorine pesticides, organophosphorus pesticides and substituted benzene compounds (benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylenes) from water samples were studied. The advantages of DLLME method are simplicity of operation, rapidity, low cost, high recovery, and enrichment factor. more

Abstract: A new approach to the pre-column derivatization and analysis of amino acids is described. The method is based upon formation of a phenylthiocarbamyl derivative of the amino acids. The derivatization method is rapid, efficient, sensitive, and specific for the analysis of primary and secondary amino acids in protein hydrolyzates. The liquid chromatographic system allows for the rapid, bonded-phase separation with ultraviolet detection of the common amino acids with 12-min analysis time and a 1-pmol sensitivity. more

Abstract: Gas chromatographic retention indices (Kovats' indices) are a valuable aid in the identification of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes in essential oils and related natural and synthetic products. Some 900 Kovats' indices of 400 individual compounds on methyl silicone (dimethyl polysiloxane) and/or Carbowax 20M liquid phases are summarized from the general literature. more

Abstract: When a hydrophilic chromatography column is eluted with a hydrophobic (mostly organic) mobile phase, retention increases with hydrophilicity of solutes. The term hydrophilic-interaction chromatography is proposed for this variant of normal-phase chromatography. This mode of chromatography is of general utility. Mixtures of proteins, peptides, amino acids, oligonucleotides, and carbohydrates are all resolved, with selectivity complementary to those of other modes. Typically, the order of elution is the opposite of that obtained with reversed-phase chromatography. A hydrophilic, neutral packing was developed for use in high-performance hydrophilic-interaction chromatography. Hydrophilic-interaction chromatography is particularly promising for such troublesome solutes as histones, membrane proteins, and phosphorylated amino acids and peptides. Hydrophilic-interaction chromatography fractionations resemble those obtained through partitioning mechanisms. The chromatography of DNA, in particular, resembles the partitioning observed with aqueous two-phase systems based on polyethylene glycol and dextran solutions. more
