Article: Quantitative detection of bisphenol A and bisphenol A diglycidyl ether metabolites in human plasma by liquid chromatography-electrospray mass spectrometry.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Due to the ubiquity of epoxy resin compounds and their potential role in increasing the risk for reproductive dysfunction and cancer, the need for an assessment of human exposure is urgent. Therefore, we developed a method for measuring bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE) metabolites in human blood samples using high-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (LC-MS). Human blood samples were processed using enzymatic deconjugation of the glucuronides followed by a novel sample preparation procedure using a solid-phase-cartridge column. This selective analytical method permits rapid detection of the metabolites, free BPA and a hydrolysis product of BADGE (BADGE-40H) with detection limits in the low nanogram per milliliter range (0.1 ng ml(-1) of BPA and 0.5 ng ml(-1) of BADGE-40H). The sample extraction was achieved by Oasis HLB column on gradient elution. The recoveries of BPA and BADGE-40H added to human plasma samples were above 70.0% with a standard deviation of less than 5.0%. This selective, sensitive and accurate method will assist in elucidating potential associations between human exposure to epoxy-based compounds and adverse health effects.Journal of chromatography.

Article: Development of sensitive high-performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection using 4-(4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazol-2-yl)-benzoyl chloride as a labeling reagent for determination of bisphenol A in plasma samples.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A sensitive HPLC method for determination of bisphenol A (BPA) in plasma samples using 4-(4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazol2-yl)benzoyl chloride (DIB-Cl) as a fluorescence labeling reagent was developed. The fluorescence labeling reaction was completed within 10 min at room temperature. DIB-Cl reacts with the phenolic hydroxyl group of BPA in the presence of triethylamine (TEA). The DIB-Cl derivative of BPA (DIB-BPA) was separated within 30 min with an ODS column using acetonitrile-water (90:10, v/v) as the isocratic eluent. Calibration graphs were linear over the range of 1.0-100 ng/ml (r=0.999). The detection limit of DIB-BPA was 0.05 ng/ml (2.5 pg) at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3. The relative standard deviations (RSDs) of the method for between-run were 1.0-5.0%. The analytical recoveries of known amounts (1.0 and 100 ng/ml) of BPA-spiked rabbit plasma were around 95%.Journal of chromatography. B, Biomedical sciences and applications 11/2001; 762(1):1-7.
