Dynamic computer simulation data are compared for the first time with CE data obtained with a laboratory made system comprising an array of 8 contactless conductivity detectors (C(4) Ds). The experimental setup featured a 50 μm id linear polyacrylamide (LPA) coated fused-silica capillary of 70 cm length and a purpose built sequential injection analysis manifold for fluid handling of continuous or discontinuous buffer configurations and sample injection. The LPA coated capillary exhibits a low EOF and the manifold allows the placement of the first detector at about 2.7 cm from the sample inlet. Agreement of simulated electropherograms with experimental data was obtained for the migration and separation of cationic and anionic analyte and system zones in CZE configurations in which EOF and other column properties are constant. For configurations with discontinuous buffer systems, including ITP, experimental data obtained with the array detector revealed that the EOF is not constant. Comparison of simulation and experimental data of ITP systems provided the insight that the EOF can be estimated with an ionic strength dependent model similar to that previously used to describe EOF in fused-silica capillaries dynamically double coated with Polybrene and poly(vinylsulfonate). For the LPA coated capillaries, the electroosmotic mobility was determined to be 17-fold smaller compared to the case with the charged double coating. Simulation and array detection provide means for quickly investigating electrophoretic transport and separation properties. Without realistic input parameters, modeling alone is not providing data that match CE results.
