Anodic Flow Capillaries

Anodic Flow Capillaries

From the earliest days of CE, it was realised that the poor peak shapes which were frequently observed with bases and biomolecules were mainly the result of interaction between the analyte and the capillary walls. Often protein separations were carried out at

high pH well above their isoelectric points in order that the wall and the analyte were both negatively charged.

Although effective for some separations, this approach effectively removes choice of pH as a separation variable.

In order to overcome this, EKT anodic flow capillaries have a permanent positive charge built into the polymer coating. This permits the separation of bases and basic proteins over a wider pH range (see application) below.

Due to the presence of the fixed positive charges the EOF is in the opposite direction to that of bare silica. (see opposite).

The separation of the basic proteins shown in the example below would normally have to be carried out at alkaline pH values in order to try and ensure that the proteins and the capillary wall would be negatively charged.

 

 


The example below illustrates the possibilities of using EKT
anodic flow capillaries for the analysis of proteins at acid
pH values. Not only does the use of anodic flow capillaries,
as opposed to bare silica capillaries, result in a vastly
improved peak shape, but the elution order of the
components lysozyme, cytochrome C, myoglobin and
ribonuclease A is completely reversed.
