Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Numerical Studies of the Effect of Buffer composition on the pH Gradient Shape
Douglas D. Frey, Nuno Pinto, and Hui Guo, Department of Chemical & Biochemical Engineering

This general strategy for numerically solving a system of equations requires a very powerful computer. The numerical simulations account for the acid-base equilibrium, adsorption equilibrium and mass transfer behavior. This describes the chromatographic theory for eluents containing adsorbing buffers.
