3 - MEKC Basics

Objective

To become familiar with fundamentals, experimental practices, and figures of merit necessary for micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography (MEKC) by implementing the technique with a capillary electrophoresis instrument.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of Learning Module III, researchers will be able to:

  1. translate fundamental concepts of MEKC into anticipated experimental outcome;
  2. determine pertinent figures of merit from MEKC data;
  3. establish standard protocol for future MEKC experiments.
