Preparative Layer Chromatography

Prof. Teresa Kowalska co-edited (together with Prof. Joseph Sherma from Lafayette College, Easton, PA, USA) the textbook titled Preparative Layer Chromatography. It appeared in 2006 as Vol. 95 of the Chromatographic Science series, published by CRC Press, the member of Taylor & Francis Group.

Preparative Layer Chromatography explains how this method is used for separating large quantities of mixtures containing a wide variety of important compounds. It offers a broad review of preparative layer chromatography (PLC) applications and adaptable working procedures for microseparations involving organic, inorganic, and organometallic compounds.

The book contains theoretical background, chemical principles, and relevance of preparative layer chromatography (PLC) to a wide range of applications, particularly in the study of pharmaceuticals and biochemistry.

Materiały pomocnicze do zajęć dydaktycznych z podstaw chemii

This handbook (co-authored by Dr. Gabriela Grygierczyk and Dr. Marzena Podgórna from our Institute of Chemistry) is addressed to the 1st course students in chemistry, environmental chemistry, physics cum chemistry, and biology. The main aim of this publication is to facilitate the students' understanding of the basic chemical concepts such, as chemical nomenclature, redox reactions, atom structure and that of the selected inorganic and organic molecules, and many others. Numerous figures and tables containing physico-chemical data are very helpful in teaching chemistry.






 

Thin Layer Chromatography in Chiral Separations and Analysis

Prof. Teresa Kowalska co-edited (together with Prof. Joseph Sherma from Lafayette College, Easton, PA, USA) the textbook titled Thin Layer Chromatography in Chiral Separations and Analysis. It appeared in 2007 as Vol. 98 of the Chromatographic Science series, published by CRC Press, the member of Taylor & Francis Group.

This book serves as the first book devoted to separations and analysis of enantiomers by means of thin layer chromatography, promotes thin layer chromatography as a flexible and versatile separation tool, covers separations and densitometric analyses, and also presents techniques, materials, and instrumentation of thin layer chromatography along with applications.

Investigation and control of chirality, which is executed almost exclusively using chromatographic techniques, ranks among the most difficult separation tasks. As the first book devoted to this topic, Thin Layer Chromatography in Chiral Separations and Analysis presents updated information on this important field. The first part of this book discusses the problem of chirality in general and the technical possibilities of carrying out enantiomer separations in detail. Addressing significant application areas, the second part of the text provides a comprehensive overview of enantioseparations and densitometric analyses that have been successfully achieved using thin layer chromatography.

Thin Layer Chromatography in Phytochemistry

Prof. Teresa Kowalska co-edited (together with Prof. Monika Waksmundzka-Hajnos from Medical University of Lublin, Lublin, Poland and Prof. Joseph Sherma from Lafayette College, Easton, PA, USA) the textbook titled Thin Layer Chromatography in Phytochemistry. It appeared in 2008 as Vol. 99 of the Chromatographic Science series, published by CRC Press, the member of Taylor & Francis Group.

This book is the first source devoted to supplying state-of-the-art information on TLC as it applies to the separation, identification, quantification and isolation of medicinal plant components. It elucidates the role of plant materials in the pharmaceutical industry and demonstrates practical methods that can be applied to a wide range of disciplines. From identification to commercial scale production and quality control, Thin Layer Chromatography in Phytochemistry is an essential bench-top companion and reference on using TLC for the study of plant-based bioactive compounds.

Preparative Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry

Profs Teresa Kowalska and Mieczysław Sajewicz co-edited (together with Prof. Joseph Sherma from Lafayette College, Easton, PA, USA) the textbook titled Preparative Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry. It appeared in 2015 as Vol. 110 of the Chromatographic Science series, published by CRC Press, the member of Taylor & Francis Group.

This book focuses on a relatively new approach to chemical analysis in general and to separation science in particular. It covers the combination of thin-layer chromatography (TLC) and high performance TLC (HPTLC), one of the most simple, cost-effective, and well-performing techniques for determining complex mixtures of compounds along with mass spectrometry (MS), a sophisticated and relatively expensive spectrometric technique that enables rapid identification of separated chemical species. In addition to that, the book covers electrophoretic - MS methods and applications.



 

Advances in Chromatography

Profs Mieczysław Sajewicz, Teresa Kowalska and Joseph Sherma co-authored Chapter 7 ("Sample Preparation for Thin Layer Chromatography") in Advances in Chromatatography vol. 53, 2016 (Eds Eli Grushka and Nelu Grinberg; ISBN 9781498726788) from the Advances in Chromatography Series, published by CRC Press, a member of the Taylor and Francis Group. For more than four decades, the books from this series have provided the scientists and researchers with the most up-to-date information on a wide range of developments in chromatographic methods and applications through the chapters written upon editors’ invitation by established and well-known chemists, to offer cutting-edge reviews of chromatographic methods with applications in the life sciences.
