Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


A method was developed for immobilizing Ag(I) and Pt(II) onto a gel filtration media using polymerized glutaraldehyde activated with thiourea. The resultant gel resin has high capacity for immobilizing biotin conjugates and was shown to be stable and useful even in the presence of relatively high chloride and phosphate concentrations.
