Abstracts in session A-Z

Short description of the abstract: A chiral UHPLC method was developed and validated to determine usnic acid enantiomer contents in lichens, and the compounds were visualized from thallus cross sections using mass spectrometry imaging and fluorescence microscopy.

A new production process for the synthesis of N,N,N-trimethylchitosan was developed and optimized with the Design of Experiment approach to obtain a highly trimethylated, water soluble chitosan derivative with significant antimicrobial activity.

Short description: In a mechanistically guided approach, the effects of 18-crown-6 on the stability of oxytocin in solution was studied. 18-crown-6 interacted with oxytocin and stabilized it in citrate/phosphate buffer but destabilized it in acetate buffer.
