A new 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH)-based photometric assay is developed for the quantification of carbonyls in protein samples from any biological source by protein carbonyl-DNPH hydrazone formation at acidic pH in the presence of denaturing urea, and subsequent hydrazone solubilization in the presence of SDS and stabilization from acid hydrolysis at pH 7.0. At this neutral (ntr) pH, interfering unreacted DNPH is uncharged and its thus increased hydrophobicity permits its 100% effective removal from the solubilizate with ethyl acetate/hexane wash...

Concerns about the environmental impact of shale energy exploration (i.e., hydraulic fracturing and other well stimulation techniques) have risen due to its rapid expansion in the United States and other countries. Soils in shale basins engaged in unconventional oil and gas development can become contaminated by volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX) through mishandling of chemical additives, products, and/or waste fluids. In this study, room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) were evaluated as solvents in an effort to increase sensitivity and to reduce and normalize matrix effects associated with varying soil compositions during analysis...

This paper extends the study of the induced temperature change in the mesostructure and in the physical properties occurring in aqueous mixtures of the ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methyl imidazolium octyl-sulfate [EMIm][OSO4 ]. For some compositions, these mixtures undergo a phase transition between the liquid (isotropic in the mesoscale) and the mesomorphic state (lyotropic liquid crystalline) at about room temperature. The behavior of mixtures doped with a divalent metal sulfate was investigated in order to observe their applicability as electrolytes...

An optode method for the determination of sulfate ion was developed. The optode membrane is 2-nitrophenyl octyl ether-plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) membrane containing tetrabromophenolphthalein ethyl ester. The method is based on formation of an ion associate between the excess of 2-aminoperimidine hydrobromide (Ap) and sulfate ion in the sample solution, and detection of the concentration of the remaining Ap ion by the optode. Under the optimal conditions, a good linear relationship was found to exist between the absorbance of the optode membrane, and concentrations of sulfate ion in a concentration range from 20 to 400 μM...

Background: The lack of systematic studies on the stability of ethanol's non-oxidative metabolites in postmortem specimens restricts their use in forensic cases. This study aimed to compare the stability of ethyl glucuronide (EtG), ethyl sulfate (EtS), phosphatidylethanols (PEths) and fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEEs) in postmortem human blood. Method: Three groups were established based on the level and source of ethanol: the blank group, the ethanol-spiked group and the ethanol-positive group...

Heparin, a highly sulfated glycosaminoglycan, is an important biomaterial having biological and therapeutic functionalities such as anticoagulation, regeneration, and protein stabilization. This study addresses a label-free quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) biosensor for heparin detection based on a macromolecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) as an artificial recognition element. We demonstrate the novel strategy for MIP in the form of thin film on a gold (Au) electrode with the plasma-induced graft polymerization (PIP) technique...

Selective anion extraction is useful for the recovery and purification of valuable chemicals, and in the removal of pollutants from the environment. Here we report that FeII 4 L4 cage 1 is able to extract an equimolar amount of ReO4 - , a high-value anion and a nonradioactive surrogate of TcO4 - , from water into nitromethane. Importantly, the extraction was efficiently performed even in the presence of 10 other common anions in water, highlighting the high selectivity of 1 for ReO4 - . The extracted guest could be released into water as the cage disassembled in ethyl acetate, and then 1 could be recycled by switching the solvent to acetonitrile...

A Raman spectroscopy study of 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium hydrogen sulfate, [C2 C1 im][HSO4 ], as a function of temperature, has been performed to reveal the role played by anion-anion hydrogen bond on the phase transitions of this ionic liquid. Anion-anion hydrogen bonding implies high viscosity, good glass-forming ability, and also moderate fragility of [C2 C1 im][HSO4 ] in comparison with other ionic liquids. Heating [C2 C1 im][HSO4 ] from the glassy phase results in cold crystallization at ∼245 K. A solid-solid transition (crystal I → crystal II) is barely discernible in calorimetric measurements at typical heating rates, but it is clearly revealed by Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction...

We report a kinetic study of the water exchange on lanthanide ions in water/[1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium][trifluoromethylsufate] (water/[EMIm][OTf]). The results from 17 O-NMR measurements show that the water-exchange rates in water/[EMIm][OTf] increase with decreasing size of the lanthanide ions. This trend for water-exchange is similar to the previously reported trend in water/1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ethyl sulfate (water/[EMIm][EtSO4 ]) but opposite to that in water. To gain atomic-level insight into these water-exchange reactions, molecular dynamics simulations for lanthanide ions in water/[EMIm][OTf] have been performed using the atomic-multipole-optimized-energetics-for-biomolecular-application polarizable force field...

Currently available markers and methods to evaluate alcohol consumption are indirect and suboptimal, or rely on self-report, which have inherent problems. Direct metabolites of alcohol, phosphatidylethanol (PEth), ethyl sulfate (EtS), and ethyl glucuronide (EtG), are known to improve diagnostic accuracy. In this study, methods were established for the identification of PEth in erythrocytes and EtG and EtS in serum using ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS). The three biomarkers were tested and validated in volunteer teetotalers (n = 4) and drinkers (n = 10), and applied in patients (n = 8) hospitalized with alcohol-related problems...

In this study, eight different types of imidazolium-based ionic liquids (ILs) were applied as new solvents in the extraction of flavonoids from grape skin, and compared to the conventional organic solvent extraction that was not reported earlier. The structure of anions, cations and concentration of ILs significantly affected extraction yields. The highest mass fractions of proanthocyanidins and anthocyanins were obtained with 2.5 mol/L of 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide [C4 mim][Br] and 2.5 mol/L of 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide [C2 mim][Br], respectively...

Ethyl alcohol is the most popular legal drug, but its excessive consumption causes social problems. Despite many public campaigns against alcohol use, car accidents, instances of aggressive behaviour, sexual assaults and deterioration in labor productivity caused by inebriated people is still commonplace. Fast and easy diagnosis of alcohol consumption is required in order to introduce proper and effective therapy, and is crucial in forensic toxicology analysis. The easiest method to prove alcohol intake is determination of ethanol in body fluids or in breath...

3-Methyl-1-(2-(phenylthio/seleno)ethyl)-1H-benzo[d]imidazol-3-ium iodide (L1/L2), a precursor of sulfated/selenated N-heterocyclic carbene, was synthesized by the reaction of benzimidazole with 1,2-dichloroethane followed by treatment with PhS/SeNa and MeI. The reaction of L1/L2 with Ag2 O followed by treatment with [Pd(CH3 CN)2 Cl2 ] (metal to ligand ratio 3 : 2), i.e. transmetallation, resulted in trinuclear palladium(ii) complexes [Pd3 (L1/L2-HI)2 (CH3 CN)Cl6 ] (1-2). The complexes were characterized with1 H,13 C{1 H} and77 Se{1 H} NMR (2 only), elemental analyses, HR-MS and single-crystal X-ray diffraction...
