Review on Utilization of Non-Ionic Tensides for Sample Pretreatment in Environmental Analysis of Organic Pollutants
Department of Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovak Republic
The article reviews recent developments and applications of the cloud-point extraction (CPE), a new promising and fast-developing technique of pretreatment of environmental samples. This approach has been recently used especially in the analysis of nonpolar to medium-polar ecotoxic analytes present in aqueous samples. CPE is mainly used for analysis of multicomponent residues in combination with high-performance separation techniques such as GC, HPLC, CE, CEC, and micellar electrokinetic chromatography.
