The use of new poly(norbornene-block-7-oxanorborn-2ene-5,6-dicarboxylic acid)-coated silica-based sorbents as well as of beaded polymers based on poly(norborn-2-ene-5,6-dicarboxylic acid-co-1,4,4a,5,8,8a-hexahydro-1,4,5,8-exo-endo-dimethanonaphthalene) for the on-line preconcentration of lanthanides from rock digests and their subsequent RP-ion-pair HPLC separation is described. Block co-polymers of norborn-2-ene and 7-oxanorborn-2-ene-5,6-dicarboxylate used for coating were prepared by ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) and poly(norborn-2-ene-5,6-dicarboxylic acid-co-1,4,4a,5,8,-8a-hexahydro-1,4,5,8-exo-endo-dimethanonaphthalene)-based polymer beads were prepared by ring-opening metathesis precipitation polymerization. Both types of sorbents exhibit an extraordinarily good pH stability, are hydrophilic and therefore easily wetable by water alone, and show high extraction efficiencies for lanthanides within a pH of 3.5-5.5. The rare earth element (REE) content in the investigated rocks varied over 3 orders of magnitude (0.19-108 microg/g). REE concentrations prior to enrichment were typically in the range of 1-25 ng/mL; the total amount of each REE sorbed onto the precolumn was in the range of 8-270 ng.

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.
