The Evolution of Size Exclusion Chromatography
Size exclusion chromatography (SEC) is a well-established high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for separating macromolecules according to their hydrodynamic volume. When SEC was first recognized 60 years ago by biochemists it was an instant success, and was mainly used for analysing complex biological samples, desalting biological solutions and for preparative separations of biopolymers. With time, SEC evolved to become the mainstay of practically all laboratories concerned with macromolecular characterization. In this instalment of the History of Chromatography column, Howard Barth traces the early development of SEC. More...

Environmental Biodegradation of Ionic Liquds
Researchers from Queen’s University of Belfast (Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK) have shown that marine bacteria are able to efficiently biodegrade ionic liquids (ILs). The biodegradation of 1-ethyl- and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium ILs by three strains — B. snaguinis, R. erythropolis and K. palustris — was demonstrated by using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
