Application

Tryptamine was used in:
  • multi-layered analysis, used to differentiate and identify biogenic amines
  • in the synthesis of indole ring-terminated thiol, ω-mercaptooctyltryptamide
  • in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopic investigation of indole ring-terminated self-assembled monolayer on gold electrode

Packaging

Multiple layers of statistical analyses were used to decipher the response from a single, cross-reactive conjugated polymer (1) providing enhanced classification accuracies over traditional multivariate statistical approaches. This analysis was demonstrated by classifying a series of seven biologically relevant, nonvolatile...
