This project involves the development of a detailed understanding of the preparation and utilization of new stationary phases (SP) for Reversed-Phase High Performance Liquid Chromatography (RP-HPLC), Capillary Electrochromatography (CEC) and Solid Phase Extraction (SFE) and Microextraction (SFME). The new SP will be prepared by sobbing and immobilizing polymers on appropriate supports, such as silica or metalized silica, or by means of chemical reactions for derivatization and/or polymerization. Our knowledge of SP preparation will be extended to the preparation of monolithic phases, a new mode for separations that presents the advantages of rapid analyses and low solvent consumption in both micro-LC and CEC. The project will emphasize studies to develop a better comprehension of the nature of the processes involved in the preparation of SP for RP-HPLC, CEC and the extractions. Physical, chemical and chromatographic methods will be used to characterize the phases. Chromatographic properties will be optimized to give more stable and more efficient chromatographic and electrochromatographic columns. The best phases will then be evaluated for possible applications with diverse environmental and pharmaceutical samples. It is expected that a fundamental understanding of the physical and chemical processes involved in the preparation of these new SP will result in useful products with applications in several different analytical separation modes, including the separations of complex mixtures of real samples.
