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.

      Direct bioautography hyphenated to direct analysis in real time mass spectrometry: Chromatographic separation, bioassay and mass spectra, all in the same sample run
      T.T. HÄBE, M. JAMSHIDI-AIDJI, J. MACHO, Gertrud E. MORLOCK* (*Chair of Food Science, Institute of Nutritional Science, Interdisciplinary Research Center (IFZ), Justus Liebig Univ. Giessen, Heinrich-Buff-Ring 26-32, 35392, Giessen, Germany,

      J. of Chromatogr. A 1568, 188-196 (2018). Mass spectra by DART-MS were recorded directly in situ the bioautogram, immediately after direct bioautography (DB). This allowed to detect bioactive analytes within the bioautogram and discriminate microorganism cells and polar bioassay medium ingredients which could otherwise stress the MS system. DB-DART-MS was used for bioactive compounds in cosmetics using the Bacillus subtilis and Aliivibrio fischeri bioassays for detection of Gram-positive and Gram-negative antimicrobials. Planar yeast estrogen screen was used for detection of estrogen-effective compounds. HPTLC-DART-MS of parabens in hand creams either on silica gel with petroleum ether - glacial acetic acid 20:3 or on RP-18W with methanol - water 1:1. Detection under UV 254 and 366 nm. Bioassay by immersing the neutralized chromatograms into the bacterial suspensions.

      Recent trends in the use of liquid fuel taggants and their analysis
      J. ORZEL, M. DASZYKOWSKI* (*Institute of Chemistry, University of Silesia, 9 Szkolna Street, 40-006 Katowice, Poland,

      Trends Anal. Chem. 87, 98-111 (2016). Chemical labeling of products (tagging) assists in the prevention and/or detection of counterfeiting. Mineral oils are protected against counterfeiting by spiking them with visible and/or invisible compounds. Due to the wide variety of available products and the different purposes for tagging there are many chemical substances used as taggants. To protect consumers and products it is important to establish the physico-chemical properties of these taggants. Review of techniques and methodologies for the analysis of liquid fuel taggants, including the application of TLC for the quantitative determination of SR24 taggant in heavy oil and for the detection of markers for petroliferous products, in particular diesel oil.
