Aqueous chromatography system using temperature-responsive polymer-modified stationary phases

Journal of Separation Science

Extensive research has been carried out on functional polymers which are currently playing important roles in various fields such as medicine and engineering. Such functional polymers which respond to various kinds of stimuli are termed 'intelligent materials'. Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm), a temperature-responsive polymer, was utilized as a chromatography column matrix modifier for a novel chromatographic approach in which only aqueous media are used as a mobile phase. The ability of the developed temperature-responsive chromatography system to separate solutes without using an organic solvent is advantageous from the point of view of maintaining the structure and activity of bioactive compounds. Recently, we designed and synthesized a new pH- and temperature-responsive copolymer as a representative of such environment-responsive polymers and grafted it onto aminopropyl silica beads. The products were evaluated as HPLC packing materials for separation systems based on a new concept, according to which the properties of the stationary phase surface are altered by external stimuli such as pH and temperature. This chromatography system utilizing the PNIPAAm copolymer is very useful for the separation of bioactive substan...Continue Reading

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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
