Determination of quinolones in chicken tissues by liquid chromatography with ultraviolet absorbance detection.
ABSTRACT This paper presents an analytical method for the determination of quinolones in chicken tissues. The procedure involves pre-treatment by solid-phase extraction (SPE) and subsequent liquid chromatography (LC) with UV absorbance detection. Different SPE disposable cartridges and extractants of the tissue samples were tested, and various columns were systematically tested. The mobile phase was composed of acetonitrile and citric buffer at pH 4.5, with an initial composition of acetonitrile-water (12:88, v/v) and using linear gradient elution. Recoveries were 66-91% in the concentration range 30-300 microg kg(-1). The detector response was linear in this range. The limits of detection were 16-30 microg kg(-1). These values were lower than the maximum residue limits established by the European Union.

ABSTRACT: A novel strategy that combines the second-order calibration method based on the trilinear decomposition algorithms with high performance liquid chromatography with diode array detector (HPLC-DAD) was developed to mathematically separate the overlapped peaks and to quantify quinolones in honey samples. The HPLC-DAD data were obtained within a short time in isocratic mode. The developed method could be applied to determine 12 quinolones at the same time even in the presence of uncalibrated interfering components in complex background. To access the performance of the proposed strategy for the determination of quinolones in honey samples, the figures of merit were employed. The limits of quantitation for all analytes were within the range 1.2-56.7 μg kg(-1). The work presented in this paper illustrated the suitability and interesting potential of combining second-order calibration method with second-order analytical instrument for multi-residue analysis in honey samples.Talanta 09/2011; 85(3):1549-59. · 3.50 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: 17β-Estradiol (E2) surface molecularly imprinted polymers have been prepared using functionalized monodispersed poly(glycidyl methacrylate-co-ethylene dimethacrylate) beads as a support. The resulting polymers were found to be uniform in size (5 μm), and the surfaces of the microspheres possessed large pore-like structures. A chromatographic experiment demonstrated that the resulting microspheres exhibited high levels of recognition and selectivity toward the target molecule. The particles were employed as a novel sorbent in a molecularly imprinted SPE protocol. A method was then developed involving the combination of the pretreatment with HPLC to determine the levels of estrogen secreted from Michigan Cancer Foundation-7 cells. The obtained results revealed that the extraction recoveries of E2 from real samples were in the range of 73.0-97.5% with RSDs of < 7.5% (n = 3). Calibration curves were established with R values > 0.9996 for concentrations in the range of 0.50-100.00 ng/mL. The LOD of this new method was 0.14 ng/mL. Compared with traditional C18 SPE agents, the particles showed high selectivity and extraction efficiency for E2 in the pretreatment process. The particles could therefore be used to determine trace estrogen in biological samples with a UV detector only.Journal of Separation Science 09/2013; · 2.59 Impact Factor
