ABSTRACT A simultaneous electrochemiluminescence (ECL) and electrochemical (EC) detection scheme for NACE was presented for fast analysis of tertiary amines. Both ECL and EC signals were generated at the same Pt electrode. Triethylamine (TEA), tripropylamine (TPrA), chlorpromazine, promethazine, and dioxopromethazine (DPZ) were selected to validate NACE-ECL/EC dual detection strategy. The linear ranges for TEA and TPrA were 0.01-500 and 0.01-10 microM with the detection limits of 8.0 and 5.0 nM (S/N=3), respectively. The RSDs (n=6) of the migration time and the ECL intensity for 1 microM TEA and 0.5 microM TPrA were 0.1 and 2.8%, and 0.2 and 1.8% with theoretical plate numbers of 180,000 and 700,000 per meter, respectively. These two analytes could be separated within 92 s and the Pt electrode did not need reactivation during the experiments. Chlorpromazine, promethazine, and DPZ could be well separated by NACE. The proposed method was also demonstrated for fast determination of DPZ in human urine with simple sample preparation. The results indicated that NACE-ECL/EC had the advantages of simple and fast analysis with more information, wide linear range, high sensitivity, and compatibility with real urine sample.

    ABSTRACT: The first detailed examination of non-aqueous capillary electrophoresis with electrochemical and electrochemiluminescence detections (NACE-EC/ECL), separation parameters and their interactions via central composite design was presented. This concept was demonstrated by examining the optimization separation conditions of seven antihistamines (chlorpheniramine, cyproheptadine, diphenhydramine, doxylamine, methapyrilene, terfenadine, and triprolidine) by NACE-EC/ECL. To evaluate the NACE separation quality, the chromatography resolution statistic function (CRS(-1) function) with regard to the resolution and migration time was established as the response variable. The influences of three experimental variables (buffer apparent pH value (pH*), buffer (TBAP) concentration, and separation voltage) on the response were investigated. A set of optimal conditions was obtained from central composite design: 9.2 mM TBAP in ACN (pH* 4.0) and voltage (12.7 kV), and under these optimum conditions, the seven antihistamines could be well separated in less than 10 min. The obtained electropherograms indicated that the dual EC/ECL detection system was indispensable since the six antihistamines (except for triprolidine) displayed both EC and ECL response, whereas triprolidine only displayed the EC response. This work is instructive for investigators in simplifying the NACE-EC/ECL development procedures for multi-component analysis.

    ABSTRACT: A new electrochemiluminescence (ECL) detector for capillary electrophoresis (CE) based on tris(2,2'-bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) (Ru(bpy)(3)(2+)) immobilized in Nafion/PTC-NH(2) (an ammonolysis product of 3,4,9,10-perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydride (PTCDA)) composite film was presented for the first time. The Nafion/PTC-NH(2) composite film could effectively immobilize tris(2,2'-bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) via ion-exchange and electrostatic interaction. Cyclic voltammetric and ECL behavior of Nafion/PTC-NH(2)/Ru composite film was investigated compared to Nafion/Ru composite. The Nafion/PTC-NH(2)/Ru composite film exhibited good ECL stability and simple operability. Then the CE with solid-state ECL detector system was successfully used to detect sophora - a quinolizidine type - alkaloids as sophoridine (SR) and matrine (MT). The CE-ECL parameters that affected separation and detection were optimized. Under the optimized conditions, the linear range was from 2.5 × 10(-8) to 2 × 10(-6)mol/L for SR, 1.0 × 10(-8) to 1.0 × 10(-6)mol/L for MT. The detection limit (S/N=3) was estimated to be 5 × 10(-9) and 10(-9)mol/L for SR and MT, respectively. It was shown that the CE coupling with solid-state ECL detector system exhibited satisfying sensitivity of analysis.

    ABSTRACT: The coupling of end-column tris (2,2′-bipyridyl) ruthenium (II) electrochemiluminescence (ECL) detection with capillary electrophoresis (CE) was developed for the analysis of two antipsychotic drugs, perphenazine (PPH) and fluphenazine (FPH). The parameters related to CE separation and ECL detection, including the detection potential, the buffer pH value and concentration, the separation voltage, and Ru(bpy)32+ concentration, were investigated in detail. Under optimum conditions, PPH and FPH were well separated and detected within 11 min. The linear ranges were 0.1–5 μM for PPH, and 0.1–7.5 μM for FPH, respectively. The limits of detection of PPH and FPH were 5 and 10 nM (S/N=3). The relative standard deviations (n=3) of the ECL intensity and the migration time were less than 2.5 and 0.65% in a day, and less than 3.4 and 1.7% in different three days. The proposed method was successfully applied to determine PPH and FPH in spiked urine samples with satisfactory results.
