      Liquid chromatography with room temperature ionic liquids
      N. LENCA, C. POOLE* (*Department of Chemistry, Wayne State University,
      Detroit, MI 48202, USA,

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 30, 97-105 (2017). Review of current applications of room temperature ionic liquids on planar chromatography as mobile phases. Methylammonium, ethylammonium, propylammonium, isopropylammonium, butylammonium, s-butylammonium, dipropylammonium, tributylammonium were reported to be used as replacements for organic solvents in binary systems. As mobile phase additives, room temperature ionic liquids were used for the separation of peptides and basic drugs in both normal phase and reversed phase chromatography with an emphasis on their role as masking agents. The authors suggested that given the large number of possible cation and anion combinations, systematic methods that characterize solvation properties for both ionic liquids and organic solvents are required.

      Quantitative HPTLC determination of selenium

      J. High Resol. Chromatogr. 9, 224-235 (1986). Quantitative HPTLC determination of selenium as 2, 1,3-naphthoselenodiazole on silica with chloroform. After developing to 5 cm the wet plate was dipped 3 times into a solution of Triton X 100 - chloroform 1:4 with evaporation of the solvent in between by storing the plate in the dark for 15 min. at 20°C. Quantification by measuring the fluorescence at 560 nm. Dipping in paraffin oil enhances and stabilizes fluorescence.

      Some aspects of the separation and identification of gold(III), selenium(IV), and tellurium(IV) ions by TLC
      I. MALINOWSKA, J.K. ROZYLO*, D.S. GAYBAKYAN, (*Fac. of Chem., Maria Curie-Sklodowska Univ., pl Marii Curie-Sklodowskiej 3, 20031 Lublin, Poland)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 3, 422-424 (1990). The possibility of using TLC for the simple and rapid separation of gold(III), selenium(IV) and tellurium(IV) is demonstrated, and the behavior of the ions chromatographed on alumina with aqueous solutions of both organic and inorganic acids is discussed. The mobile phases investigated included HCl, HBr, H2SO4, H3PO4 and HNO3 and aqueous solutions of various organic acids, over a wide range of concentration.
