A novel nano-sorbent was developed for selective extraction and pre-concentration of p-amino benzoic acid (PABA) prior to determination by spectrophotometry. Selective extraction of PABA from aqueous solutions was performed using a solid-phase extraction column packed with 200 mg of nickel-zinc-aluminium layered double hydroxide (Ni-Zn-Al LDH) as a nano-sorbent. Extraction procedure is based on the adsorption of p-amino benzoate ions on the Ni-Zn-Al-nitrate LDH and/or their exchanging with LDH interlayer nitrate ions. After elution of extracted analyte by 2.5 mL of 2 mol L(-1) NaCl solution, its concentration was determined spectrophotometrically at λmax = 268 nm. The spectrophotometry method gave a linear response for PABA within the range of 12.5-425.0 μg L(-1) with a correlation coefficient of 0.9994. In the optimum experimental conditions, the limit of detection and sorption capacity were 3.78 μg L(-1) and 21.25 mg g(-1) , respectively. The presented method uses mild separation conditions and is a sensitive, reproducible, simple, low-cost and environment-friendly technique that could be used for the extraction and determination of PABA in various cosmetic samples.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
