ABSTRACT A highly selective molecularly imprinted solid-phase extraction (MISPE) combined with liquid chromatography-ultraviolet detection
was developed for the simultaneous isolation and determination of four Sudan dyes (I, II, III and IV) in egg-yolk products.
The imprinted microspheres synthesized by suspension polymerization using phenylamine–naphthol as mimic template show high
selectivity and affinity to the four kinds of Sudan dyes and were successfully applied as selective sorbents of solid-phase
extraction for the simultaneous determination of the four Sudans from egg-yolk samples. Good linearity was obtained in a range
of 0.062–10μgg−1 and the average recoveries of the four Sudans at three spiked levels ranged from 94.1 to 102.5% with the relative standard
deviations less than 5.8%. The developed extraction protocol eliminated the effect of template leakage on quantitative analysis
and could be applied for the determination of Sudans in complicated food samples.

    ABSTRACT: The new ionic liquid modified polymeric microspheres (ILPM) were synthesized by precipitation polymerization using 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([Bmim][PF(6)]) as the functional monomer, divinylbenzene (DVB) as the cross-linker, and a mixture of toluene and acetonitrile as the dispersant solvent. The obtained ILPM showed good adsorbability to the four kinds of Sudan dyes and were successfully applied as a special sorbent of solid-phase extraction (SPE) coupled with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the simultaneous isolation and determination of four Sudan dyes from foodstuff samples. Compared with the traditional SPE adsorbents such as neutral alumina and C(18), the ILPM sorbents provided higher recovery with a significant purification effect. Good linearity was obtained in a range of 0.05-4.0 μg/g (r(2) ≥ 0.9996) for the four kinds of Sudan dyes, and the average recoveries at three spiked levels ranged from 92.5% to 106.1% with the relative standard deviations ≤5.7%. The proposed ILPM-SPE-HPLC method could be potentially applied to rapid isolation and determination of Sudan dyes in complicated food samples.

    ABSTRACT: A new separation and preconcentration method based on adsorption on a cellulose acetate membrane filter and elution with ethanol was established for the UV-Vis spectrophotometric determination of Sudan blue II. Various analytical parameters such as pH of working media, flow rates of solutions, and sample volumes were optimized. Matrix effects of concomitants were investigated for the quantitative recovery values of Sudan blue II. The preconcentration factor was 200. LOD was calculated as 0.96 μg/L. RSD was 5.1%. The optimized procedure was applied to the spectrophotometric determination of Sudan blue II in river and industrial wastewater samples from oil and dye products.

    ABSTRACT: A new monolithic fiber based on dual functional monomers was prepared and applied for the solid-phase microextraction and determination of sudan dyes (I, II, III and IV) in tomato sauce and egg yolk samples by coupling with high performance liquid chromatography. Octadecyl methacrylate and vinylimidazole were used as functional monomers to copolymerize with divinylbenzene to form the monolithic fibers. The effect of preparation conditions of monolithic fibers on extraction efficiencies were investigated in detail. Elemental analysis, infrared spectroscopy, mercury intrusion porosimetry and scanning electron microscopy were used to characterize the monolithic materials. In the optimized process, several extractive parameters, including desorption solvent, extraction and desorption time, pH values and ionic strength in sample matrix, were optimized thoroughly. Under the optimized extraction conditions, the limits of detection (S/N=3) for sudan dyes were 0.07-1.46 µg/kg in tomato sauce and 0.14-2.07 µg/kg in egg yolk, respectively. Method repeatability was achieved in terms of intra- and inter-day precisions, indicated by the RSDs, which were both <10%. Satisfactory recoveries of spiked target analytes in these samples ranged from 71.4% to 110%, with RSD less than 11%.
