Recent novel MEKC applications to analyze free amino acids in different biomatrices: 2009–2010



This report intends to provide an updated overview of the most important methodological developments of MEKC in the field of qualitative/quantitative analysis of free amino acids in different matrices. A good number of articles published in the years 2009–2010 addresses the main applications of such procedures together with their advantages and/or drawbacks. The usefulness of chiral CE selective methods for the separation of D-amino acids in biological and food samples and the use of microchips, as well as other foreseen trends in different areas, are also discussed.
