The prochiral anthelmintic drug albendazole was administered orally to sheep and rats. Blood samples were taken at standardized intervals during the time course of the plasma kinetics: 18 h in rats and 48 h in sheep. The enantiomeric ratio of the sulfoxide metabolite was determined by means of HPLC on a chiral stationary phase, the chiral selector of which(More)
Near-critical extraction of major alkaloids from poppy straw was performed successfully with a simple device consisting mainly of two chromatographic pumps and a pressure regulator. The optimum extractant, consisting of carbon dioxide, methanol and water, gave a quantitative extraction of thebaine, codeine and morphine in 20 min. The method was compared(More)
The direct enantiomeric resolution of albendazole sulfoxide (SOABZ), an anthelmintic drug belonging to the benzimidazole class, is reported on a chiral stationary phase (CSP) synthesized by covalent binding of (S)-N-(3,5-dinitrobenzoyl)tyrosine-O-(2-propen-1-yl) methyl ester on a gamma-mercaptopropyl-silanized silica gel. A comparison with the resolution(More)
A specific and reproducible HPLC method using a Chiral-AGP column and UV detection was developed for the evaluation of the pharmacokinetic profile of oxodipine enantiomers in dog and man. Each enantiomer was determined in plasma in the concentration range 1-400 ng/ml using the internal standard calibration method with linear regression analysis. After(More)
Interfacing and evaluation of packed column supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC)-microwave-induced plasma atomic emission detection (AED) is described. Via a flow splitter and an integral restrictor, efficient transfer of solutes from column to detector without band broadening is obtained. Variation of CO2 flow-rate during pressure gradients has little(More)
An improved synthesis of a chemically bonded electron acceptor, namely tetrachlorophthalimidopropyl silica, is described. Factors governing the silane preparation and its bonding to silica have been studied, namely reaction temperature and duration, pretreatment of silica, specific area, pore diameter, washing of the bonded silica, influence of solvent(More)
The separation by high-performance liquid chromatography of seventeen phenylthiohydantoin derivatives of amino acids released after Edman degradation of proteins is described. Sixteen phenylthiohydantoin derivatives of amino acids are differentiated within 40 min by liquid-liquid partition on a column packed with Micropak CN (moderately polar alkyl nitrile(More)
Subcritical and supercritical fluid chromatography (SubFC and SFC) have been evaluated for the resolution of an homologous series of enantiomeric amides. The solutes were the 2-naphthoyl amides of an homologous series of amines, ranging from 2-aminobutane to 2-aminoctane, and the p-methyl-, p-methoxy- and p-chlorophenylamides of 2-aminoheptane. The chiral(More)
Spherosil, a spherical porous silica, has been investigated for use in high speed liquid-solid chromatography and compared to Lichrosorb Si-60, using three phenothiazines as test solutes. Particle size distribution for four different size ranges with nominal mean diameters of 5, 10, 20 and 40 mu m is given. Distribution is very homogeneous. Columns from 15(More)
