Abstract

Surfactants are frequently used in the prepn. of background electrolytes (BGEs) in capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) to affect and to optimize both the electroosmotic flow (EOF) and the sepn. process. Their effects are, however, always multiple, the resulting situation may be very complex and the sepn. process may even be destroyed. The authors use the surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as a model example and bring exptl. results and related discussion which elucidate the multiple effect of surfactants in an integrated way. Even at concn. levels
