  1. Oligopeptides as mimic of acetylcholinesterase: from the rational design to the application in solid-phase extraction for pesticides.

    Analytical chemistry 80(23):9150 (2008) PMID 19551938

    Three different peptides (His-Glu-Pro-Ser, His-Gly-Ser-Ala and Glu-Pro-Ser-Ala) were selected and tested to be used as affinity binding receptors for organophosphate and carbamate pesticides. The peptides were rationally designed by mimicking acetylcholinesterase active site. The simulated bindi...

    Two simple and straightforward procedures for determining the organic content of hybrid silica materials by means of conventional NMR and GC/MS techniques are described. The methods involve dissolving the hybrid material either in a concentrated solution of sodium hydroxide in deuterated water c...

    Here we report the first worldwide reconnaissance study of the presence and occurrence of pesticides in fruit-based soft drinks. While there are strict regulations and exhaustive controls for pesticides in fruits, vegetables, and drinking water, scarce attention has been paid to highly consumed ...
  8. Development of a selective ESI-MS derivatization reagent: synthesis and optimization for the analysis of aldehydes in biological mixtures.

    Analytical chemistry 80(23):9042 (2008) PMID 19551932

    In LC-MS, derivatization is primarily used to improve ionization characteristics, especially for analytes that are not (efficiently) ionized by ESI or APCI such as aldehydes, sugars, and steroids. Derivatization strategies are then directed at the incorporation of a group with a permanent charge...
  9. Effect of sample heterogeneity on the interpretation of QCM(-D) data: comparison of combined quartz crystal microbalance/atomic force microscopy measurements with finite element method modeling.

    Analytical chemistry 80(23):8891 (2008) PMID 18954085

    A quartz crystal microbalance was integrated into an AFM in order to monitor the adsorption of biomolecules to the resonator surface with both atomic force microscopy and microgravimetry. The comparison between the two techniques allows the fractional coverage of the surface, theta, to be correl...
  10. Identification of viruses using microfluidic protein profiling and Bayesian classification.

    We present a rapid method for the identification of viruses using microfluidic chip gel electrophoresis (CGE) of high-copy number proteins to generate unique protein profiles. Viral proteins are solubilized by heating at 95 degrees C in borate buffer containing detergent (5 min), then labeled wi...
