A simple method for fabrication of silver-coated sheathless electrospray emitters

Authors


Abstract

A simple and time-saving procedure is proposed for preparing a silver-coated fused-silica capillary tip. The tapered capillary tip was coated with silver using an acrylic-based silver conductive pen. The fabrication of a silver-coated fused-silica capillary tip takes less than 5 minutes. The silver-coated fused-silica capillary tip is rugged and durable for sheathless capillary electrophoresis/electrospray mass spectrometry and also for microspray applications.
