    ABSTRACT: The new type of stationary bonded phases for liquid chromatography with immobilized artificial membrane properties was synthesized. Based on the modification of diol-bonded silica gel the phosphodiester stationary phases were obtained. The structures of synthesized material were confirmed by different physico-chemical techniques such as elemental analysis, infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), (13)C CP/MAS NMR and in reversed phase and hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography, where hydrophobic and polar compounds were sufficiently separated. To present the influence of phosphate group on the retention properties, obtained material were compared with Diol-Ester C12 stationary phase. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Four chiral drugs were enantioseparated by native beta-cyclodextrin (β-CD) and negatively charged carboxymethyl-beta-cyclodextrin (CM-β-CD) using capillary electrophoresis coupled with electrochemiluminescence detection (CE-ECL). Using 50mM pH 5.5 Tris-H3PO4 with 10mM CM-β-CD as a running buffer, high resolution efficiency could be obtained. With the help of isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and molecular modeling, the chiral recognition mechanism was comprehensively investigated. Thermodynamic parameters data from ITC revealed that CM-β-CD exhibited stronger binding affinity with analytes than β-CD, and that the driving forces of CM-β-CD responsible for chiral recognition were mainly electrostatic interactions between negatively charged CM-β-CD and positively charged analytes. In addition, from both a macroscopic and microscopic point of view, the results of NMR and molecular modeling investigation adequately confirm the conclusion by comparing the stereochemical structures of complexes. Combination of ITC, NMR and molecular modeling techniques not only can assist CE to investigate the chiral discrimination mechanism, but also can predict and guide CE enantioseparation efficiency conversely.

    ABSTRACT: An optimized analytical method based on C8 core-shell reverse phase chromatographic separation and high resolution mass spectral (HRMS) detection is developed for a fast analysis of unbound phytochelatins (PCs) in plants. Its application to analysis of Clinopodium vulgare L. is demonstrated where proper PCs liberating and preservation conditions were employed using dithiotreitol in the extraction step. A baseline separation of glutathione (GSH) and phytochelatins from 2 to 5 (PC2-PC5) for 3min was achieved at conventional HPLC backpressure, with detection limits from 3ppt (for GSH) to 2.5ppb (for PC5). It is shown, that the use of HRMS with tandem mass spectral (MS/MS) capabilities permits additional wide range screening ability for iso-phytochelatins and PC similar compounds, based on exact mass and fragment spectra in a post acquisition manner.

    ABSTRACT: Non-polar solvent dynamic microwave assisted extraction was firstly applied to the treatment of high-fat soybean samples. In the dispersive micro-solid-phase extraction (d-µ-SPE), the herbicides in the high-fat extract were directly adsorbed on metal-organic frameworks MIL-101(Cr). The effects of several experimental parameters, including extraction solvent, microwave absorption medium, microwave power, volume and flow rate of extraction solvent, amount of MIL-101(Cr), and d-µ-SPE time, were investigated. At the optimal conditions, the limits of detection for the herbicides ranged from 1.56 to 2.00μgkg(-1). The relative recoveries of the herbicides were in the range of 91.1-106.7%, and relative standard deviations were equal to or lower than 6.7%. The present method was simple, rapid and effective. A large amount of fat was also removed. This method was demonstrated to be suitable for treatment of high-fat samples. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: We have developed a label-free fluorescence sensor for caffeic acid (CA) by the use of CdTe:Zn(2+) quantum dots (CdTe:Zn(2+) QDs) as an output signal. The principle of sensor is based on the fluorescence quenching and binding properties of Fe(2+) toward QDs and CA, respectively. To provide a fluorescence turn-on mode for CA detection, Fe(2+) is first mixed with QDs solution, leading to a low fluorescence emission. With the addition of CA, the fluorescence of QDs is recovered due to the strong binding interaction between CA and Fe(2+). Thus, a QDs-based label-free fluorescence sensor, designed in a simple mix-and-detect format, is established for CA detection. This study demonstrated here not only offers simple, sensitive and non-enzymatic detection method for CA, but also brings to light a new application of QDs in the food analysis.

    ABSTRACT: By using the aptamer proximity binding assay strategy, the development of a label-free and homogeneous approach for fluorescent detection of human platelet-derived growth factor BB (PDGF-BB) is described. Two G-quadruplex forming sequence-linked aptamers bind to the PDGF-BB proteins, which leads to the increase in local concentration of the aptamers and promotes the formation of the G-quadruplex structures. Subsequently, the fluorescent dye, N-methylmesoporphyrin IX, binds to these G-quadruplex structures and generates enhanced fluorescence emission signal for sensitive detection of PDGF-BB. The association of the aptamers to the PDGF-BB proteins is characterized by using native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The experimental conditions are optimized to reach an estimated detection limit of 3.2nM for PDGF-BB. The developed method is also selective and can be applied for monitoring PDGF-BB in human serum samples. With the advantages of label-free and homogeneous detection, the demonstrated approach can be potentially employed to detect other biomarkers in a relatively simple way.

    ABSTRACT: A cost-efficient and portable device for detecting sulfide at submicromolar level was fabricated by in situ integrating gas-permeable porous tube isolation and long path absorbance detection. The device consisted of a pair of petri dish, having a diametrically strung porous membrane tube in the top cover. The ends of the tube were terminated by a light emitting diode and a photodiode via plugging acrylic optical fiber into the light input/output of tees. Sulfide put in the bottom dish was liberated by addition of diluted acid through a port on the cover. The liberated hydrogen sulfide diffused into the porous membrane tube and reacted with alkaline nitroprusside acceptor in the tube. The color change in the long path porous membrane tube cell was real-time monitored in the transmission mode. The device responded linearly to sulfide concentration over the range of 0.5-150.0μmol/L with relative standard deviations less than 5% in all cases. The limits of detection for sulfide were within the range 0.2-1.5μmol/L in aqueous standard and newborn calf serum. The device was successfully applied to the determination of sulfide in human serum samples. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Activated carbon filters are used to limit engine damage by siloxanes when biogas is utilised to provide electricity. However, carbon filter siloxane removal performance is poorly understood as until recently, it had not been possible to measure siloxanes on-line. In this study, on-line Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy was developed to measure siloxane concentration in real biogas both upstream (86.1-157.5mgm(-3)) and downstream (2.2-4.3mgm(-3)) of activated carbon filters. The FTIR provided reasonable precision upstream of the carbon vessel with a root mean square error of 10% using partial least squares analysis. However, positive interference from volatile organic carbons was observed in downstream gas measurements limiting precision at the outlet to an RMSE of 1.5mgm(-3) (47.8%). Importantly, a limit of detection of 3.2mgm(-3) was identified which is below the recommended siloxane limit and evidences the applicability of on-line FTIR for this application.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, a novel integrated sample preparation device for SDS-assisted proteome analysis was developed, by which proteins dissolved in 4% (w/v) SDS were first diluted by 50% methanol, and then SDS was online removed by a hollow fiber membrane interface (HFMI) with 50mM ammonium bicarbonate (pH 8.0) as an exchange buffer, finally digested by an immobilized enzyme reactor (IMER). To evaluate the performance of such an integrated device, bovine serum albumin dissolved in 4% (w/v) SDS as a model sample was analyzed; it could be found that similar to that obtained by direct analysis of BSA digests without SDS (the sequence coverage of 60.3±1.0%, n=3), with HFMI as an interface for SDS removal, BSA was identified with the sequence coverage of 61.0±1.0% (n=3). However, without SDS removal by HFMI, BSA could not be digested by the IMER and none peptides could be detected. In addition, such an integrated sample preparation device was also applied for the analysis of SDS extracted proteins from rat brain, compared to those obtained by filter-aided sample preparation (FASP), not only the identified protein group and unique peptide number were increased by 12% and 39% respectively, but also the sample pretreatment time was shortened from 24h to 4h. All these results demonstrated that such an integrated sample preparation device would provide an alternative tool for SDS assisted proteome analysis. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

    ABSTRACT: A facile one-pot approach has been developed to prepare orange-emitting Cu nanoclusters (NCs) using tetrakis(hydroxymethyl)phosphonium chloride as a reducing agent and lipoic acid as a capping agent under an alkaline medium at room temperature. The as-prepared Cu NCs exhibited excellent water solubility, large Stokes shift, long lifetime and good dispersion. After the addition of polyvinyl pyrrolidone, the fluorescence intensity of dihydrolipoic acid-stabilized Cu NCs (DHLA-Cu NCs) was greatly enhanced, and their fluorescence signal remained stable for 5 weeks storage in the dark at room temperature. Based on H2O2-induced fluorescence quenching, DHLA-Cu NCs showed high sensitivity and selectivity for the detection of H2O2 in aqueous solution with a detection limit of 0.3μM, and were applied successfully to the detection of H2O2 in human urine samples.

    ABSTRACT: This work aimed at the development of a methodology implemented in an automatic flow system for determination of the antioxidant capacity in food samples, based on the luminol oxidation by inline photogenerated radical species from cadmium telluride nanoparticles capped with l-glutathione. Radical species were generated inline by a high-power visible light obtained by Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) assembled in a multipumping flow system (MPFS). The use of visible light instead of UV radiation allowed the development of a new methodology for antioxidant capacity determination, more environment friendly and to circumvent the risk for UV photo-induced degradation of sample antioxidant compounds. Additionally, the formation of superoxide radical species was theoretically predicted considering the variation of the redox potential with the size of CdTe QDs and the values of redox potential of the oxidizing and oxidable species present in the irradiated medium. The obtained results of trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC) from the analysis of commercial beverages were compared with the results of ABTS and DPPH batch assays through Spearman's-Rho correlation coefficients and no correlation was found (for ABTS: ρ=0.2, p<0.6 and for DPPH: ρ=0.5, p<0.1) since the mechanism of action of the proposed methodology was based on the scavenging capacity of ROS species rather than the reduction of a colored oxidant. An analytical linear response range between 0.0001 and 0.005mmolL(-1) of trolox and a limit of detection of 0.00005mmolL(-1) was found. The QDs based MPFS methodology allowed a determination rate of about 79h(-1), a total waste generation of 20.5mLh(-1) and the consumption of 0.100mgh(-1) of QDs and 2.1mgh(-1) of luminol.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, a simple and sensitive electrochemical strategy for arsenite detection based on the ability of arsenite bound to single-strand DNA (ssDNA) and the signal transduction of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is developed. To realize this purpose, the ssDNA/SWCNTs complexes were formed at first by making ssDNA wrapped around SWCNTs via π-stacking. In the presence of arsenite, the arsenite could strongly bind with the G/T bases of ssDNA and decrease the π-π interaction between ssDNA and SWCNTs, resulting in a certain amount of ssDNA dissociating from the complexes. The separated SWCNTs were selectively assembled on the self-assembled monolayer (SAM) modified Au electrode. Then the SWCNTs onto the SAM-modified Au electrode substantially restored heterogeneous electron transfer that was almost totally blocked by the SAM. The assembled SWCNTs could generate a considerably sensitive and specific tactic for signal transduction, which was related to the concentration of the arsenite. Through detecting the currents mediated by SWCNTs, a linear response to concentration of arsenite ranging from 0.5 to 10ppb and a detection limit of 0.5ppb was readily achieved with desirable specificity and sensitivity. Such a SWCNTs-based biosensor creates a simple, sensitive, nonradioactive route for detection of arsenite. In addition, this demonstration provides a new approach to fabrication of stable biosensors with favorable electrochemical properties believed to be appealing to electroanalytical applications.
