Capillary Electrophoresis-electrochemiluminescence Detection Method for the Analysis of Ibandronate in Drug Formulations and Human Urine Electrophoresis. Aug, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 21793001 A simple, rapid and sensitive CE method coupled with electrochemiluminescence (ECL) detection for direct analysis of ibandronate (IBAN) has been developed. Using a buffer solution of 20 mM sodium phosphate (pH 9.0) and a voltage of 13.5 kV, separation of IBAN in a 30-cm length capillary was achieved in 3 min. ECL detection was performed with an indium tin oxide working electrode bias at 1.6 V (versus a Pt wire reference) in a 200-mM sodium phosphate buffer (pH 8.0) containing 3.5 mM Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) (where bpy=2,2'-bipyridyl). Derivatization of IBAN prior to CE-ECL analysis was not needed. Linear correlation (r=0.9992, n=7) between ECL intensity and analyte concentration was obtained in the range of 0.25-50 μM IBAN. The LOD of IBAN in water was 0.08 μM. The developed method was applied to the analysis of IBAN in a drug formulation and human urine sample. SPE using magnetic Fe(3)O(4)@Al(2)O(3) nanoparticles as the extraction phase was employed to pretreat the urine sample before CE-ECL analysis. The linear range was 0.2-12.0 μM IBAN in human urine (r=0.9974, n=6). The LOD of IBAN in urine was 0.06 μM. Total analysis time including sample preparation was
A Dipole-assisted Solid-phase Extraction Microchip Combined with Inductively Coupled Plasma-mass Spectrometry for Online Determination of Trace Heavy Metals in Natural Water The Analyst. Jan, 2015 | Pubmed ID: 25426495 We employed a polymeric material, poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), for fabricating a microdevice and then implanted the chlorine (Cl)-containing solid-phase extraction (SPE) functionality into the PMMA chip to develop an innovative on-chip dipole-assisted SPE technique. Instead of the ion-ion interactions utilized in on-chip SPE techniques, the dipole-ion interactions between the highly electronegative C-Cl moieties in the channel interior and the positively charged metal ions were employed to facilitate the on-chip SPE procedures. Furthermore, to avoid labor-intensive manual manipulation, a programmable valve manifold was designed as an interface combining the dipole-assisted SPE microchip and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to achieve the fully automated operation. Under the optimized operation conditions for the established system, the detection limits for each analyte ion were obtained based on three times the standard deviation of seven measurements of the blank eluent solution. The limits ranged from 3.48 to 20.68 ng L(-1), suggesting that this technique appears uniquely suited for determining the levels of heavy metal ions in natural water. Indeed, a series of validation procedures demonstrated that the developed method could be satisfactorily applied to the determination of trace heavy metals in natural water. Remarkably, the developed device was durable enough to be reused more than 160 times without any loss in its analytical performance. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study reporting on the combination of a dipole-assisted SPE microchip and elemental analysis instrument for the online determination of trace heavy metal ions.
