The importance of capillary electrophoresis (CE) as an analytical tool has increased dramatically over the last ten years. It has changed from being an exploratory technique, mainly of academic interest, to one that is applied to solve "real" analytical problems. CE is easily adapted to its various modes of operation, often requiring little more than a change of the buffer solution, and is quickly becoming the preferred technique when analyzing minute amounts of available material. Featuring new chapters on CE analysis of inorganic ions and carbohydrates, the new edition of Capillary Electrophoresis not only presents this method as an academic tool, but also provides applications for solving "real-world" analytical problems. This updated Second Edition reflects the increasing use of CE over the last 10 years, how it is being applied, and the basic theoretical aspects of the separation and detection methodology of CE. Capillary Electrophoresis: Theory and Practice will appeal to students and professionals of analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, and biotechnology and includes suitable experiments designed to be attempted by university or college students, or anyone else wishing to familiarize themselves with CE.

Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) has had a very significant impact on the field of analytical chemistry in recent years as the technique is capable of very high resolution separations, requiring only small amounts of samples and reagents. Furthermore, it can be readily adapted to automatic sample handling and real time data processing. Many new methodologies based on CE have been reported. Rapid, reproducible separations of extremely small amounts of chemicals and biochemicals, including peptides, proteins, nucleotides, DNA, enantiomers, carbohydrates, vitamins, inorganic ions, pharmaceuticals and environmental pollutants have been demonstrated. A wide range of applications have been developed in greatly diverse fields, such as chemical, biotechnological, environmental and pharmaceutical analysis. This book covers all aspects of CE, from the principles and technical aspects to the most important applications. It is intended to meet the growing need for a thorough and balanced treatment of CE. The book will serve as a comprehensive reference work. Both the experienced analyst and the newcomer will find the text useful.

This new book on capillary electrophoresis (CE) is unique in its focus on biotechnology. It is devoted to proteins, peptides, and techniques especially useful in the area of recombinant DNA products. Emphasis is also placed on glycoproteins. Because of the growing role of the glycosylation process in CE, a comprehensive chapter on the subject acts as a book within a book. Although this well-known researcher in biotechnology presents a number of chapters extensively discussing theories, important practical aspects in the routine use of capillary electrophoresis are also covered.

Capillary electrophoresis (CE) is a brand-new analytical me- thod with the capability of solving many analytical separa- tion problems very fast and economically. This method gives new information about the investigated substances which can- not easily be obtained by other means. CE has become an established method only recently, but will be implemented in almost every analytical laboratory in industry, service units and academia in the near future. The most important fields of CE application are pharmaceutical and biochemical research and quality control. The authors have exhaustive practical experience in the application of CE methods in the pharmaceutical industry and provide the reader with a comprehensive treatment of this method. The main focus is on how to solve problems when applying CE in the laboratory. Physico-chemical theory is only dealt with in depth when necessary to understand the underlying separation mechanisms in order to solve your problems at the analytical bench. An addendum includes tables on the preparation of buffers and recommended further reading.

Capillary Electrophoresis in Chiral Analysis Bezhan Chankvetadze Tbilisi State University, Republic of Georgia The application of capillary electrophoresis (CE) to the field of chiral analysis has exploded recently. The advantages of capillary electrophoresis - extremely high peak efficiency, excellent compatibility with biological samples, short analysis time, simplicity, versatility and low cost - are perfect for the accurate measurement of optical purity, increasingly important in the regulation-ruled pharmaceutical industry. Although there have been a number of books on capillary electrophoresis and chiral analysis separately, as yet there has been no dedicated monograph on the application of capillary electrophoresis to chiral analysis. This book bridges the gap. Capillary Electrophoresis in Chiral Analysis charts the evolution of chiral capillary electrophoresis and describes new types of chiral selectors and mechanistic aspects of chiral recognition. While on the one hand, it is an excellent introduction to newcomers, on the other, it is of practical use to experienced researchers in the field wishing to solve a particular separation problem. It includes an alphabetical list of chiral compounds resolved using CE with appropriate references, which any one working in the field will find invaluable.

Effective remediation of polluted environments is a priority in both Eastern and Western countries. In the U.S. and Europe, remediation costs generally exceed the net economic value of the land. As a result, scientists and engineers on both sides of the Atlantic have aggressively tried to develop novel technologies to meet regulatory standards at a fraction of the costs. In situ remediation shows considerable promise from both technical and economic perspectives. In situ technologies that deploy natural attenuating agents such as humic substances (HS) may be even more cost effective. Numerous studies have shown humics capable of altering both the chemical and the physical speciation of the ecotoxicants and in turn attenuate potential adverse environmental repercussions. Furthermore, the reserves of inexpensive humic materials are immense. Which suggests HS portend great promise as inexpensive amendments to mitigate the environmental impacts of ecotoxicants and as active agents in remediation. To elucidate emerging concepts of humics-based remediation technologies, we organized the NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW), entitled "Use of humates to remediate polluted environments: from theory to practice", held on September 23-29, 2002 in Zvenigorod, Russia (see the web-site http://www.mgumus.chem.msu.ru/arw).
