Abstract Despite several decades of mercury research, answering fundamental questions on where and how methylmercury (CH3Hg) toxin is naturally produced in aquatic ecosystems, is still highly challenging. Investigating complex and/or coupled processes in the context of global changes requires new high-resolution analytical tools. The purpose of the compound specific carbon stable isotopic analysis (δ13C-CSIA) of the methyl group of methylmercury (CH3Hg), is to explore how the carbon cycle contri...
Abstract With 4,4′-diaminoterphenyl and phloroglucinol as the monomers, Azo-linked porous organic polymer (PP) was prepared by a green mild azo reaction. Azo-PP is rich in phenolic hydroxyl groups and benzene rings, which can form intermolecular hydrogen bonds with the phenolic hydroxyl groups in interest benzotriazoles (BZTs). The π-π interaction between the benzene ring and the triazole ring would promote the adsorption of target BZTs on Azo-PP . Azo-PP/polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) coated stir ...
Abstract The correct identification of the metalloproteins present in human tissues and fluids is essential to our understanding of the cellular mechanisms underpinning a host of health disorders. Separation and analysis of biological samples are typically done via size exclusion chromatography hyphenated with inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (SEC-ICP-MS). Although this technique can be extremely effective in identification of potential metalloproteins, the choice of mobile phase may...
Abstract Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) is a technique that has been widely applied in a variety of proteomics studies. It is capable of resolving complex protein mixtures into individual protein spots based on their isoelectric point and molecular weight, enabling large-scale analysis of protein expression patterns for deciphering their changes in different biological conditions. 2-DE is a powerful tool that empowers researchers to perform differential qualitative and quantitative p...
Abstract Polymers obtained from tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) and triethoxymethylsilane (MTEOS) have been functionalized with different metal and metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs), and used as coatings of extractive capillaries for the extraction of polar compounds by in-tube solid-phase microextraction (IT-SPME) coupled on-line to nano-liquid chromatography (nano-LC). The extraction capabilities of the new phases have been studied using several triazinic herbicides with log of octanol/water par...
Abstract Biological samples are usually complex matrices due to the presence of proteins, salts and a variety of organic compounds with chemical properties similar to those of the target analytes. Therefore, sample preparation is often mandatory in order to isolate the analytes from troublesome matrices before instrumental analysis. Because the number of samples in drug development, doping analysis, forensic science, toxicological analysis, and preclinical and clinical assays is steadily increas...
Abstract Microporous organic network (MON) is a promise class of functional materials in solid phase extraction (SPE). However, the previous MON-based SPE works are all focused on off-line mode. The inherent drawbacks of off-line SPE such as complicated operation steps and poor repeatability still hinder the potential applications of MON. In addition, direct use of traditional synthesized nano-sized MON in on-line SPE is impractical. To solve these issues, here we show the synthesis of silica am...
Abstract We report on a direct comparison of the separation performance in capillary nano-LC between commercial packed bed columns and the small-domain silica monoliths in applications. Octadecylsilylated monolithic silica capillary columns with a 50 and 100 μm inner diameter (i.d.) were prepared with a procedure providing domain sizes in the sub-2 μm range. The fabricated monolith columns could provide plate heights (H) of 4.0‒4.2 μm for hexylbenzene (retention factor (k) = 3.6) at an optimal l...
Abstract Royal Jelly (RJ) constitutes one of the most popular beehive products and for this reason the use of inexpensive sweeteners during its production remains an important quality issue. In the present study we report results of metabolic profiling of RJ samples obtained after the application of artificial bee-feeding using different feeding protocols. The hydrophilic content of RJ samples was assessed by applying (HILIC)UPLC-MS/MS. In total 96 crude RJ samples were analysed with the develop...
Abstract Polyglycerol esters (PGEs), produced by esterification of fatty acids on polyglycerols, were analysed by High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRMS), HPLC-MS and U-HPLC-MS. A structural study of PGEs in 4 samples synthesised by the Gattefosse company was carried out using an elemental analysis of HRMS spectra and modelling of all probable isomers and cyclic structures. The results were used to construct a structural database of all species present in the 4 samples. After an assessment of t...
