Abstract

p-tert-Butylcalix[8]arene bonded capillaries for open-tubular capillary electrochromatography were prepared with γ-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane as a bridge. The bonded capillary displayed low and steady electroosmotic flow (EOF) values over the pH range from 4 to 9. Detection limits for direct spectrophotometric detection at 277 nm for benzenediols (at a signal to noise ratio of 2) were 0.96 mg l−1 for the unbonded capillary and 1.48 mg l−1 for the bonded capillary, showing that the bonded layer did not show significant absorbance and hence decreased sensitivity. The bonded capillaries showed good separation selectivity for o-, m- and p-benzenediols, α- and β-naphthols, and α- and β-naphthylamines. This selectivity was attributed to significant interactions between the analytes and the bonded p-tert-butylcalix[8]arene, which contributed to the electrochromatographic separation mechanism. The bonded capillaries gave high stability and reproducibility.
