Introduction

Electrophoresis has been an important tool for carbohydrate analysis since its early stages of development. Moving with time from paper electrophoresis to polyacrylamide slab gel electrophoresis and then to the sophisticated high performance capillary

electrophoresis (HPCE), its influence in many chemical, biochemical and biomedical fields has grown constantly. New detection techniques and buffer systems have been developed to make use of the advantages offered by HPCE, such as low sample and buffer volumes, fast separations and high efficiencies. Today, sample volumes in the range of single cell liquids can be analysed. The development of highly sensitive detectors and new derivatization procedures has constantly lowered the detection limit. In the light of these advantages, the following article will focus on capillary electrophoresis.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
