Studies from Jilin University Yield New Information about Acrylates

June 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators publish new report on Acrylates. According to news reporting originating from Changchun, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "A poly(butyl methacrylate-co-ethyleneglyceldimethacrylate) (poly(BMA-EDMA)) monolithic column was prepared with in situ polymerization method and modified with allylamine-beta-cyclodextrin (ALA-beta-CD) and nano-cuprous oxide (Cu2O). A polymer monolith microextraction method was developed with the modified monolithic column for the preconcentration of polychlorinated biphenyls combined with gas chromatography-electron capture detector."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Jilin University, "Various parameters affecting the extraction efficiency were investigated and optimized. Under the optimum experimental conditions, we obtained acceptable linearities, low limits of detection, and good intra-day/inter-day relative standard deviations. Because of the hydrophobic properties of beta-CD and the porous nano structure of Cu2O, the enrichment capacity of the poly(BMA-EDMA) monolithic column was significantly improved. The extraction efficiency followed the order: poly(BMA-EDMA-ALA-beta-CD-Cu2O) > poly(BMA-EDMA-ALA-beta-CD) > poly(BMA-EDMA) > direct GC analysis. When applied to the determination of polychlorinated biphenyls in wine samples, low limits of detection (0.09 ngmL(-1)) were obtained under the preoptimized conditions (sample volume 1.0 mL, sample flow rate 0.1 mL min(-1), eluent volume 0.1 mL, and eluent flow rate 0.05 mL min-1). In addition, the present method was employed to determine polychlorinated biphenyls in red wine samples and the accuracy was assessed through recovery experiments."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The obtained recovery values were in the range of 78.8-104.1% with relative standard deviations less than 9.0%."
