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.

      Rapid Commun. Mass Spectrom. 33, 60-65 (2019). TLC of oxidation products of 1‐palmitoyl‐2‐oleoyl‐sn‐phosphatidylcholine (POPC) and 1‐palmitoyl‐2‐linoleoyl‐sn‐phosphatidylcholine (PLPC) on silica gel (NP) and RP-18 with chloroform - ethanol - water - triethylamine 20:35:7:35 for NP-TLC and methanol - chloroform - water 10:1:1 for RP-TLC. Detection for NP-TLC under UV 366 nm after spraying with primuline, and for RP-TLC under white light after spraying with molybdatophosphoric acid solution, followed by heating at 130 ºC. Lipids zones from both plates were eluted with methanol and further analyzed by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry.
