The Cumulative CAMAG Bibliography Service CCBS contains all abstracts of CBS issues beginning with CBS 51. The database is updated after the publication of every other CBS edition. Currently the Cumulative CAMAG Bibliography Service includes more than 11'000 abstracts of publications between 1983 and today. With the online version you can perform your own detailed TLC/HPTLC literature search:

  • Full text search: Enter a keyword, e.g. an author's name, a substance, a technique, a reagent or a term and see all related publications
  • Browse and search by CBS classification: Select one of the 38 CBS classification categories where you want to search by a keyword
  • Keyword register: select an initial character and browse associated keywords
  • Search by CBS edition: Select a CBS edition and find all related publications

Registered users can create a tailor made PDF of selected articles throughout CCBS search – simply use the cart icon on the right hand of each abstract to create your individual selection of abstracts. The saved items can be printed to PDF using the print function of your web browser.

      Progress in automated multiple development
      C.F. POOLE*, M.T. BELAY, (*Dept. of Chem., Wayne State Univ., Detroit, MI 48202, USA)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 4, 345-359 (1991). Description of the evolution of automated multiple development from manual multiple development through programmed multiple development and discussion of the general role of solvent strength gradients and solvent selectivity emphasizing their application to AMD. The large number of experimental parameters encountered in method development is recognized as one of the main current weaknesses of AMD. The method has, however, a number of attractive features which will ensure continuing interest in the technique.

      J. AOAC Int. 82, 587-598 (1999). Description of a new automated overpressured-layer chromatographic (OPLC) system which is suitable for analytical and semipreparative separations. The automatic microprocessor-controlled system ensures rapid and reproducible off-line isocratic and stepwise gradient separations. With optimum linear velocity theoretical plate heights of 10 - 30 µm resp. 6 - 15 µm can be reached (on irregular silica gel with an average particle size of 5µm resp 3 µm spherical silica gel). Rapid analytical separations of resveratrol (1555 s) and xanthine by one- (498 s) and two-directional (274 s) off-line developments were accomplished.
