Milestones In Chromatography
LCGC North America

May 01, 2001

On the occasion of the 60-year anniversary of the invention of partition chromatography and the 50-year anniversary of the introduction of gas-liquid partition chromatography, this installment of Milestones in Chromatography discusses the circumstances that led to these developments...

In this article, the authors review recent developments in the research of whole-column-imaging detection for capillary electrophoresis (CE). Whole-column-imaging detection was developed for capillary isoelectric focusing, for which it proved to be an ideal detector. Several whole-column-imaging detectors -- including refractive index gradient imaging, UV-absorption imaging, and fluorescence imaging detectors -- have been studied. The capillary isoelectric focusing UV-absorption imaging technique even has been commercialized. The development of whole-column-imaging detection itself facilitates CE studies in many directions such as in electrophoretic dynamics within narrow channels, new separation modes, and two-dimensional separations. Whole-column-imaging detection also finds application in capillary zone electrophoresis.

The authors investigated the analytical capabilities of quadrupole, time-of-flight, and Fourier transform mass analyzers for liquid chromatography electrospray mass spectrometry (LC-MS) applications.
