To determine the environmental occurrences, fate, and effects of the enantiomers of selected chiral pesticides and other chiral pollutants.
The generic method described here involves typical capillary electrophoresis (CE) techniques, with the addition of cyclodextrin chiral selectors to the electrolyte for enantiomer separation and also, in the case of neutral analytes, the further addition of a micelle forming compound such as sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) for separation by the micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC) mode of CE. This generic method has broad application for the separation and analysis of enantiomers of chiral pesticides and other small molecules in a variety of environmental matrices.
