A simple and sensitive catalytic spectrophotometric method was developed for the determination of selenium in biological matrices. The method is based on the catalytic effect of selenium on the reaction of Methylene Blue (MB) with sodium sulfide. For a given reaction between MB and sodium sulfide, the change in the MB absorbance with time was monitored, then the time (t) required for completion of the reaction was determined, and t(-1) was calculated. A plot of t(-1) versus selenium concentration constituted the calibration graph, which was linear in the range 2.5-30 ng ml(-1) selenium. In this study, experimental parameters and the effect of interferences on determinations of selenium were examined. Tetramethylammonium hydroxide digestion was applied to blood, hair and urine samples; it was found to give the best results for urine. Then the catalytic method was applied to urine samples (84.9% recovery).

NAQVI, SMS; OZALP, VC; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; YUCEL, M (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 1994-06-01)
A simple method for the two-dimensional analysis of proteins was developed based on direct extraction of a protein sample from dried/precipitated material into isoelectric focusing (IEF) gel solution. This sample solution is equally useful for sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and two-dimensional electrophoresis. For the former method this sample solution is applied directly to the gel. For the tatter, sample solution containing a desired amount of proteins is mixed with IEF ge...
A rapid method for detection of genetically modified organisms based on magnetic separation and surface-enhanced Raman scattering

In this study, a new method combining magnetic separation (MS) and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) was developed to detect genetically modified organisms (GMOs). An oligonucleotide probe which is specific for 35 S DNA target was immobilized onto gold coated magnetic nanospheres to form oligonucleotide-coated nanoparticles. A self assembled monolayer was formed on gold nanorods using 5,5'-dithiobis (2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) and the second probe of the 35 S DNA target was immobilized on the activa...
DETERMINATION OF SELENIUM IN HUMAN DIETS BY RADIOCHEMICAL NEUTRON-ACTIVATION ANALYSIS
ELHALLAQ, YH; GOKMEN, IG; ARAS, NK; Gökmen, Ali (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 1992-03-01)
A post-irradiation radiochemical separation technique was tested for the determination of selenium levels in diet samples, collected by using a duplicate portion technique, from both rural and urban population groups in Turkey. The technique involved sample irradiation, acid digestion, selective distillation, precipitation and filtration steps. During the separations it was possible to determine the yield of each sample using a stable selenium carrier. An average chemical yield of 71 +/- 3% was obtained ...
Introduction of solid-phase microextraction as a high-throughput sample preparation tool in laboratory analysis of prohibited substances
Boyacı, Ezel; Rodriguez-Lafuente, Angel; Bojko, Barbara; Pawliszyn, Janusz (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-27)
A fully automated, high-throughput method based on thin-film solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry was developed for simultaneous quantitative analysis of 110 doping compounds, selected from ten classes and varying in physical and chemical properties. Among four tested extraction phases, C18 blades were chosen, as they provided optimum recoveries and the lowest carryover effect. The SPME method was optimized in terms of extraction pH, ionic strength of the sample, wa...
Use of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in matrix solid phase dispersion extraction combined with gas chromatography
Njie, Njaw; Aygün, Rüveyde Sezer; Department of Chemistry (2008)
The use of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) as solid sorbent in Matrix Solid-Phase Dispersion (MSPD) extraction and preconcentration method was presented to determine some commonly used organophosphorus insecticides/OPIs in honey samples using a Gas Chromatography Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID). OPIs are poisonous compounds used to kill insects and rodents by affecting their nervous system. The limit of detections obtained after MSPD extraction were 7.0 ng/g for Malathion, Malaoxon and Fenitrothion...
