ABSTRACT

A contactless conductivity detector integrated into the capillary cassette of Agilent (3D)CE equipment is described. The detector is user-friendly, compact and easily modified. The UV detector of the (3D)CE equipment is available parallel with the contactless conductivity detector increasing the detection power. Two electrolyte solutions, 2-(N-morpholino)ethanesulfonic acid-histidine solution (20 mM, pH 6.0) and ammonium acetate (10 mM, pH 4.0), were used as the separation media for inorganic cations and organic catecholamines, respectively. The detection limit for all metal cations except barium was under 0.5 mg/l, and that for four catecholamines was ca. 10 mg/l. This last value was the same order of magnitude as achieved with parallel UV detection.
