ABSTRACT A simple and highly selective molecularly imprinted solid-phase extraction (MISPE) combined with ultrasound-assisted dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) was developed for the determination of four Sudan dye (I, II, III, and IV) residues in sausage products. The novel molecularly imprinted microspheres (MIMs) synthesized by aqueous suspension polymerization using phenylamine-naphthol as the dummy template show high affinity to the four Sudan dyes and were applied as selective sorbents of MISPE-DLLME to overcome the drawbacks of template leakage in quantitative analysis. Good linearity was obtained in a range of 0.005-2.0 μg g(-1) and the average recoveries of the four Sudan dyes at three spiked levels ranged from 86.3 to 107.5%. The MISPE-DLLME-HPLC protocol significantly improved the purification and enrichment of the analytes and eliminated the template leakage of the conventional MISPE on quantitative analysis.

    ABSTRACT: Dispersive liquid-phase microextraction with solidification of floating organic drop (SFO-DLPME) is one of the most interesting sample preparation techniques developed in recent years. In this paper, a new, rapid and efficient SFO-DLPME coupled with HPLC was established for the extraction and sensitive detection of banned Sudan dyes, namely Sudan I, Sudan II, Sudan III and Sudan IV, in foodstuff and water samples. Various factors, such as the type and volume of extractants and dispersants, pH and the volume of sample solution, extraction time and temperature, ion strength, and humic acid concentration, were investigated and optimized to achieve optimal extraction of Sudan dyes in one single step. After optimization of extraction conditions using 1-dodecanol as extractant and ethanol as dispersant, the developed procedure was applied for extraction of the target Sudan dyes from 2 g of food samples and 10 mL of the spiked water samples. Under the optimized conditions, all Sudan dyes could be easily extracted by the proposed SFO-DLPME method. Limits of detection of the four Sudan dyes obtained were 0.10-0.20 ng g-1 and 0.03 μg L-1 when 2 g of foodstuff samples and 10 mL of water samples were adopted, respectively. The inter-day and intra-day reproducibility was below 4.8% for analysis of Sudan dyes in foodstuffs. The method was satisfactorily utilized to the detection of Sudan dyes, and the recoveries of the target for the spiked foodstuff samples and water samples ranged from 92.6% to 106.6% and 91.1% to 108.6%, respectively. These results indicated that the proposed method is simple, rapid, sensitive and suitable for the preconcentration and detection of the target dyes in foodstuff samples.

    ABSTRACT: Solid-phase extraction followed by dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction (SPE-DLLME) technique has been developed as a new analytical approach for extracting, cleaning up and preconcentrating benzaldehyde, a toxic oxidation product of the widely used preservative and co-solvent benzyl alcohol, in injectable formulation solutions. SPE of benzaldehyde from samples was carried out using C18 sorbent. After the elution of benzaldehyde from the sorbent by using acetonitrile, DLLME technique was performed on the obtained solution. Benzaldehyde was preconcentrated by using DLLME technique. Thus, 1.5 mL acetonitrile extract (disperser solvent) and 55.0 µL 1,2-dichloroethane (extraction solvent) were added to 5 mL ultra pure water and a DLLME technique was applied. Several variables that govern the proposed technique were studied and optimized. Under optimum conditions, the method detection limit (LOD) of benzaldehyde calculated as three times the signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) was 0.08 µg L−1. The relative standard deviation (RSD) for four replicates was 5.8 %. The calibration graph was linear within the concentration range of 0.5–500 µg L−1 for benzaldehyde. The proposed method has been successfully applied to the analysis of the benzaldehyde in injectable formulation solutions (diclofenac, vitamin B-complex and voltaren) and the relative recoveries were between 88 and 92 % and show that matrix has a negligible effect on the performance of the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: A simple, rapid and effective extraction method based on matrix solid phase dispersion (MSPD) and ultrafast liquid chromatographic (UFLC) was developed and validated for the simultaneous cleaning-up and quantitative extraction of illegal dyes (Sudan I-IV) from the roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge. The experiment parameters, such as dispersing sorbent, the ratio of sorbent-sample, washing solvent and elution solvent were evaluated to find the optimal MSPD conditions. The optimal conditions were 0.5 g of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, 1.0 g of silica gel as dispersing sorbent, a volume of 10 mL of water as the washing solvent and 4 mL of acetonitrile-methanol (9:1, v/v) as the elution solvent. Under these conditions good linearity for all the Sudan dyes ranged from 0.10 μg g−1 to 10 μg g−1 (r2 ≥ 0.9992). The recoveries at three spiked levels (0.1, 1.0, 5.0 μg g−1) were between 80.6% and 96.1% with relative deviations (RSDs) ranging from 2.3% to 8.6%. The limits of detection ranged between 0.013 and 0.024 μg g−1 which were twenty times lower than the values required by European regulations. This method has potential to be applied for the determination of illegal dyes in complicated traditional Chinese herb materials.
