Title: Unusual Thermal Degradation Behavior of Poly(dimethyl siloxane) Filled with Conductive Fillers

Abstract: It is a general belief that (conductive) fillers enhance the thermal stability of poly(dimethyl siloxane) (PDMS), thus the thermal degradation starts late for highly filled PDMS systems. Herein, we explored the unexpected thermal degradation behavior of PDMS containing high amounts of thermally conductive fillers such as boron nitride and silicon carbide together with carbon nanotube. The increased amount of thermally conductive filler enhanced the thermal stability, however, the faster thermal degradation was observed with the increased amount of electrically conductive filler in the presence of a high loading thermally conductive filler. The reason for this unusual observation may be due to the enhanced heat penetration into the PDMS molecules caused lby the presence of thermally conductive fillers.

Title: Analysis of Alkaloids by Liquid Chromatography (RP, HILIC and ion-exchange) by TLC-DAD and HPLC-DAD in Medicinal Herbs and Herbal Drugs

Abstract: Alkaloids are pharmacologically active compounds widely used as pharmaceuticals and synthesised as secondary methabolites in plants. Many of these compounds are strongly toxic. Therefore, they are often subject of scientific interests and analysis. Since alkaloids – basic compounds appear in aqueous solutions as ionized and unionized forms, they are difficult for chromatographic separation for peak tailing, poor systems efficiency, poor separation and poor column-to-column reproducibility. For this reason is necessity searching of more suitable chromatographic systems for analysis of the compounds.
The main objective of this study is to develop and compare the retention behavior of a group of basic compounds – alkaloids, investigation of separation selectivity for selected alkaloids (mostly isoquinoline alkaloids) of typical RP and HILIC stationary phases with different systems for hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) and reversed-phase chromatography (RP). Application of the two chromatographic systems (HILIC and RP) is especially useful for correct identification of components of difficult, complicated mixtures - determination of alkaloids in medicinal herbs. HILIC gives possibility of very fast determination of analytes in the original samples in the time shorter than 5 min.
Keywords: hydrophilic-interaction chromatography; reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography; alkaloids, Glaucium flavum; UV-spectra, HPLC-DAD, TLC-DAD
