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: In this paper, a highly selective sample cleanup procedure combing dummy molecular imprinting and solid-phase extraction (DMI-SPE) was developed for the simultaneous isolation and determination of five phthalate esters in plastic bottled beverages. The new imprinted microspheres were synthesized via precipitation polymerization using diisononyl phthalate as a dummy template that showed high selectivity and affinity to the five kinds of phthalate esters and were successfully applied as selective sorbents of DMI-SPE for the simultaneous determination of the phthalate esters from plastic bottled beverages. Good linearity was obtained in a range of 5.0-750.0 μg/L, and the average recoveries of the five phthalate esters at three spiked levels ranged from 84.3 to 96.2% with the relative standard deviations less than 5.49%. The developed extraction protocol eliminated the effect of template leakage on quantitative analysis and could be applied for the determination of phthalate esters in complicated functional beverages products.

    ABSTRACT: A simple membrane filtration procedure for separation-enrichment of Sudan orange G is presented. The method is based on the adsorption of Sudan orange G on a cellulose acetate filter and its elution from the membrane with 10 mL of ethanol. Sudan orange G in the eluent was determined by UV-visible spectrophotometry at 388 nm. The effect of analytical conditions, including pH, flow rates and eluent, sample volume, type of membrane for quantitative preconcentration and separation of Sudan orange G were examined. The influences of matrix components on Sudan orange G recoveries were studied. The preconcentration factor was 125. The detection limit was 4.9 μg L(-1). The relative standard deviation was 4.3%. The presented procedure was applied to chili powder, chili sauce, tomato sauce, powdered beverage and water 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.
