Although not frequently a problem, recent incidents at sea have led to large amounts of crude oil being released and dispersed throughout the Gulf of Mexico, such as in the Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill of 2010. Originally presumed to be Louisiana Sweet Crude, sample testing later revealed a harsher form of crude containing a high amount of asphaltenes was actually being released.

Oftentimes it becomes necessary to test sea water for oil and grease analytes. Whether it is due to a controlled release of effluent water from a waste water treatment plant (usually during large rain storms) or a large oil spill, there is a need generated for a reliable, automated extraction and evaporation system.

Throughout the world, a lack of regulation has been blamed for the detection of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCP) in some bodies of water. While the detected amounts are usually relatively small, the persistence of these compounds means that they can cause untold damage to the ecosystem for years to come.

Although not frequently a problem, recent incidents at sea have led to large amounts of crude oil being released and dispersed throughout the Gulf of Mexico. Originally presumed to be Louisiana Sweet Crude, sample testing later revealed a harsher form of crude containing a high amount of asphaltenes was actually being released. The differences are substantial, as Louisiana Sweet degrades more readily in nature than crude oil containing asphaltenes.

This poster describes the development and validation of a method for supported liquid extraction of serum cortisol, with analysis by UPLC-MS/MS. The aim of this study was to develop a candidate reference method that could then be used to underpin the UK NEQAS Cortisol scheme.

The formation of diarylethers by reacting an arylhalide and phenol is usually a reaction demanding long reaction times, high temperatures and strong bases, in order to obtain acceptable yield. The substitution patent of the electrophile and the nucleophile affects the reaction times mostly. A sterically hindered electrophile and a strongly deactivated nucleophile as outlined in the (Scheme 1) below, gives a very low yield (13 %) at conventional reflux for 2 weeks.1,2 Remainder was
recovered starting material. We have previously reported the dramatically shortened reaction time to 1 hour along with improved yield running the reaction outlined in the Scheme by heating by microwaves.

This poster demonstrates that a large urine panel, comprised of 43 DOAs, from multiple drug classes, can be simultaneously screened by mixed-mode cation exchange SPE (using EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX 96 well plates) despite their disparate intermolecular traits, by thoughtfully selecting appropriate organic wash and elution conditions that simultaneously enable sample isolation and detection along with minimizing sample matrix effects.
The extraction method is automated using the Biotage® Extrahera™ Automated sample Preparation Platform.

One of the most common flash purification challenges is
dealing with hard-to-dissolve crude samples. Because polar
solvents cause poor chromatographic results when used as
injection solvents in normal-phase flash chromatography, other
sample load options are needed.

Removing water with a membrane rather than the older technique of passing the solvent through a column of sodium sulfate (Na2SO4) brings several advantages. The most important analytically is that the membrane will not adsorb analytes or contaminate the extract with matrix or other potential interferences.
