Sedimentation Velocity Analytical Ultracentrifugation: Discrete Species and Size-Distributions of Macromolecules and Particles
Size exclusion chromatography and sedimentation velocity indicated that the monomer: dimer ratio was 1:1 for pool A and 4:1 for pool B.
where u is the sedimentation velocity, w, o are the density of aqueous and oil phases, B is the viscosity of continuous phase, g is the acceleration due to gravity, a is the size of dispersed droplet, J is the collision rate of two spherical particles, K is the constant, T is the temperature of the system, f is the dispersed phase contents and is the parameter depending upon surface charge and size of the droplets.
Using an orthogonal approach, techniques such as SEC, SEC-MALS (SEC with combined with multi-angle light scattering), sedimentation velocity AUC (SV-AUC), dynamic light scattering (DLS), sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-Page) and field flow fractionation (FFF) can be used for the determination of a wide range of colloidal features of biomolecules.
