Melamine is a toxic triazine, illegally used as an additive in milk to apparently increase the amount of protein. A chromatographic procedure using a C18 column and a micellar mobile phase of sodium dodecyl sulphate (0.05M) and propanol (7.5%), buffered at pH 3, and a detection set by absorbance at 210nm, was reported for the resolution and quantification(More)
The validation of several micellar LC-based analytical methodologies was described. These methods were able to quantify quinolones in fish from fisheries, hydroxytyrosol in olive extracts and biogenic amines in anchovy sauce. The validation was performed following the requirements of official guides to provide more reliability. Two guides suggested by(More)
Melamine is a nitrogen-rich industrial chemical which is occasionally used to increase the apparent protein content of different products destined for human and animal consumption. In this work, a liquid chromatographic procedure that uses micellar mobile phases of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) buffered at pH 3, a C18 column and UV detection is reported for(More)
Because of the large potential health impact caused by deliberate contamination with the synthetic chemical melamine of different products for human and animal consumption, the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations provided a range of recommendations in order to facilitate obtaining needed data, among(More)
Measurement of urine and plasma melamine-concentration is helpful in confirming melamine-associated renal diseases. A chromatographic procedure using a C18 column and a micellar mobile phase of sodium dodecyl sulphate (0.2M), buffered at pH 3 and detection set at 210 nm, was reported for the resolution and quantification of melamine in plasma and urine.
