A capillary zone electrophoresis method has been carried out to determine and quantitate some compounds of the polyphenolic fraction of virgin olive oil which have never previously been determined before using capillary electrophoresis, such as elenolic acid, ligstroside aglycon, oleuropein aglycon, and (+)-pinoresinol. The compounds were identified using(More)
A sensitive and inexpensive micellar-enhanced synchronous-derivative spectrofluorimetric method is described for the determination of folic acid in pharmaceutical preparations. The method is based upon derivatization of the vitamin with fluorescamine in acid solution and enhancement of the fluorescence with a surfactant. Linear fluorimetric analytical(More)
A sensitive, rapid, efficient, and reliable method for the separation and determination of phenolic acids by capillary zone electrophoresis has been carried out. A detailed method optimization was carried out to separate 14 different compounds by studying parameters such as pH, type and concentration of buffer, applied voltage, and injection time. The(More)
Fourteen phenolic acids have been selectively determined in olive-oil samples using the co-electrosmotic capillary electrophoresis mode with UV detection after the LLE extraction system. A polycationic surfactant (hexadimetrine bromide, HDB), which dynamically coats the inner surface of the capillary and causes a fast anodic electroosmotic flow, was added(More)
A sensitive method is presented for the determination of the synthetic antioxidant butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) based on the dansylation process of the phenolic hydroxy group. The fluorescence developed can be measured directly without previous extraction or chromatographic separation of the labelled fluorescent compound. It is shown the effect of(More)
A simple spectrofluorimetric analysis of a local anaesthetic named procaine using a specific labelling reagent for primary amino groups, has been developed. Because procaine shows very weak native fluorescence, the technique of spectrofluorimetry has been very much limited for its determination. A detail study of the variables affecting the derivatisation(More)
A simple, selective and sensitive heavy atom-induced room temperature phosphorimetric method (HAI-RTP) is described for the determination of naproxen (NAP) in pharmaceutical preparations. The phosphorescence signals are a consequence of intermolecular protection when analytes are, exclusively, in presence of a heavy atom salt and sodium sulfite as an oxygen(More)
A test mixture of five pesticides and metabolites (naphthalene acetamide, carbaryl, 1-naphthol, thiabendazole, and carbendazime) has been investigated by capillary electrophoresis with an ultraviolet diode array detector. These compounds were separated in <10 min by micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography (MEKC). MEKC was performed in 30 mM(More)
This paper presents a facile and selective method for the determination of the pharmaceutical compound nafronyl using heavy atom induced room temperature phosphorimetry (HAI-RTP) as analytical technique. The determination was performed in potassium iodide 1.6 M and sodium sulphite 0.002 M at a measurement temperature of 20 degrees C. The phosphorescence(More)
A method is described for the analysis of the insecticide imidacloprid [1-(6-chloro-3-pyridylmethyl)-N-nitroimidazolidin-2-ylideneamine] and its metabolite 6-chloronicotinic acid by micellar electrokinetic chromatography with diode-array detection at 270 and 227 nm, respectively. The best results were obtained using sodium dodecyl sulphate at a(More)
