Sensitive and selective analysis of wood sugars and uronic acids for biofuel research with electrochemical detection
contributed by Knauer |
Monosaccharides belong to the most abundant group of biomolecules in nature. They play a crucial role in metabolism, structural biology, and storage of energy. Thus, the analysis of these special type of carbohydrates is of great interest for the food industry but also for a broad range of life and material sciences. The presence of hydroxyl groups enables a specific and highly sensitive analysis using pulsed amperometric detection (PAD) with the DECADE Elite electrochemical detector as part of the dedicated AZURA® High Performance Anion Exchange Chromatography (HPAEC) system.
