Capillary Electrophoresis: Methods and Protocols presents a selection of current capillary electrophoresis methods used to separate representative types of molecules and particles and in combination with different detection techniques. The volume is intended for beginners in the field and provides overviews of each technique and a starting point for the exploration of the defined literature on the different application topics. As a beginning text, each technique is explained in simple terms, assuming only minimal previous knowledge of the methods. A Notes section accompanies each chapter and addresses problems that may occur and how to overcome them.
In Part I, Analyte-Oriented, contributors present methods and protocols based on sample type and size for inorganic and organic small ions, anionic, cationic, and neutral pollutants and pharmaceuticals, sugars, amino acids, nucleotides and DNA, and synthetic copolymers up to microorganisms. In Part II, Methods-Oriented, authors present the more methodological descriptions of particular and new CE techniques including CZE, MEKC/MECC, CEC, affinity CE, coating and online concentration techniques, single-cell analysis, and multidimensional techniques. Comprehensive and timely, Capillary Electrophoresis: Methods and Protocols is ideal for researchers looking for a beginning text on capillary electrophoresis methods.
