Research Interests

Our research focuses on the development of Field Flow Fractionation (FFF) instruments which based on separation and purification of macromolecules. There are two major problems that perplex people to control the mass of macromolecules: (1) Biological macromolecules in the process of separation and purification are easy to lose their activity; (2) Relative molecular weight distribution and molecular size measurement are too inaccurate or difficult to determine. We have successfully developed two sets of FFF instruments. One is Asymmetrical Flow Field Flow Fractionation (AF4). we applied it without packing materials for the separation and characterization of allergenic proteins and immunoglobulins for the first time. AF4 for allergy protein and IgE separation methods is established; flow velocity, carrier fluid and sample injection amount are optimized to ensure total separation of allergenic protein and immunoglobulins,FFF theory was used to verify and explain the rationality and feasibility of the experiment. The other is Gravitational Field Flow Fractionation (GrFFF). The device of GrFFF has been assembled to separate and characterize the particle size of five medicinal starch such as corn, pea, wheat, potato and waxy corn etc.
