Our CCBS database includes more than 11,000 abstracts of publications. Perform your own detailed search of TLC/HPTLC literature and find relevant information.

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. You can export your saved items to PDF by clicking the download icon.

      Using the HPTLC-bioluminescence bacteria assay for the determination of acute toxicities in marine sediments and its eligibility as a monitoring assessment tool
      Anna LOGEMANN*, M. SCHAFBERG, B. BROCKMEYER (*Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH), Bernhard-Nocht-Str. 78, 20359, Hamburg, Germany,

      Chemosphere. 233, 936-945 (2019). HPTLC of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in marine sediments on silica gel with n-hexane - dichloromethane - toluene 14:5:1. Qualitative identification using the wavelengths 190-310  nm. Toxicological potential of the sediment samples was determined by the intrinsic fluorescence of Aliivibrio fischeri by dipping into the bacteria solution and analysis with a BioLuminizer.

      Determination of PAHs in toys by HPTLC
      Sophie BEHRINGER, W. SCHWACK* (*Institute of Food Chemistry, University of Hohenheim, Garbenstrasse 28, 70599 Stuttgart, Germany,

      CBS 108, 12-15 (2012). HPTLC of anthracene (ANT), benzo[b]fluoranthene (BBF), benzo[k]fluoranthene (BKF), pyrene (PYR), acenaphthene (ACE), benzo[a]anthracene (BAA), benzo[a]pyrene (BAP), benzo[ghi]perylene (BPE), chrysene (CHR), dibenzo[a,h]anthracene (DBA), indeno[1,2,3-c,d]pyrene (IND), fuorene(FLU), fuoranthene (FLA), and phenanthrene (PHE) in toys on RP-18 phase with acetonitrile - water 9:1 by three-fold development over 45, 55 and 65 mm using automated multiple development (AMD) under nitrogen. Detection at 254 and 366 nm. Quantitative fluorescence measurement at different excitation wavelengths with cut-off filters: 220 nm/>320 nm for ACE, 250/>320 for ANT, 366/>400 for BAA and BAP, 270/>400 for BBF, BPE, BKF, CHR, DBA, FLA, IDN (after dipping in nitromethane), 250/>320 for FLU and PHE and at 270/>320 for PYR. Polynomial regression with high coefficients of correlation and low standard deviations. Coeffivients of variation for repeatability and reproducibility were below 10 %. This method allows the determination of 14 of the 16 PAHs. With LODs of 0.1-0.2 mg/kg the demands for the German GS mark (label for checked safety) are fulfilled. The results by HPTLC were comparable to results obtained by GC-MS.

      Fingerprinting of soot dust materials using micro-TLC
      E. WLODARCZYK, M. BARAN, M. SLACZKA, J. PORTKA, P. ZARZYCKI* (*Section of Toxicology and Bioanalytics, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Environmental and Geodetic Sciences, Koszalin University of Technology, 75-453 Koszalin, Poland,

      J. Liq. Chromatogr. Relat. Technol. 37, 2846-2856 (2014). HPTLC fingerprinting of materials originated from cold surfaces of biomass fuel and fossils-fired home heating ovens, as well as truck exhaust systems and asphalt concrete samples on RP-18 with n-hexane. Fluorescence detection at UV 366 nm and absorbance detection (fluorescence inhibition) at UV 254 nm. The method can be used to identify wrong combustion parameters or unsuitable fuel.
