 Thanks for the reply, I did exactly what Jim suggested. ie, tried high 
pH DEA elution and 5M LiCl elution. It didn't work out. In fact I am trying 
conventional methods now. I wonder if ming could dig out the reference 
and send it to me. I did the search on Richard Burgess and didn't find 
the reference ming refered. thanks a lot for the suggestion. yl
