Malondialdehyde (MDA) is a biomarker for lipid peroxidation, and studies of sensitive and selective analytical methods for it are very important for pathological research. The aim of this work was to develop and validate a novel HPLC method for the quantification of MDA in biological fluids using rhodamine B hydrazide (RBH) as the derivatization reagent.(More)
Biologically active low-molecular-mass thiols, mainly including glutathione (GSH), cysteine (Cys), homocysteine (Hcy), and cysteinylglycine (Cys-Gly), are important physiological components in biological fluids, and their analytical methods have gained continuous attention over recent years. We developed and validated a novel HPLC method for the(More)
Isothiocyanates (ITCs) are one of the many classes of breakdown products of glucosinolates found in plants and exhibit biologic activity against various pathogens. In this work, aliphatic isothiocyanates were prepared and the antimicrobial activities against plant pathogenic fungi and bacteria were tested to understand the structure–activity relationships.(More)
A new method for glyphosate residue determination in apple has been developed. A SPE cartridge was used to clean up the samples before derivatization. Glyphosate was derivatized with 4-chloro-3,5-dinitrobenzotrifluoride (CNBF) and quantified by reverse ion-pair liquid chromatography using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as ion-pair reagent. In pH 9.5(More)
Eighteen samples of commercially available Chinese beer were analyzed in order to determine the content of biogenic amines. The method involves pre-column derivatization of the amines with 4-chloro-3,5-dinitrobenzotrifluoride (CNBF) and subsequent analysis by RP-HPLC (reversed phase-high performance liquid chromatography) with diode array detection. The(More)
Levonorgestrel and quinestrol, commonly known as EP-1, has long been used in the control of wild rodents. Up to the present time, however, no method for simultaneous quantification of levonorgestrel and quinestrol in rat plasma has been reported. In the present study, a sensitive reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet(More)
The occurrence and fate of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in aquatic species have attracted close attention during the last decades. In this study, the bioaccumulation and biotransformation of synthetic estrogen quinestrol, one of the typical EDCs, in the plasma and liver of crucian carp, were investigated by a newly developed and validated(More)
The reaction of 5,5'-(pyridine-2,6-diyl)bis(4-amino-3-mercapto-1,2,4-triazole) with various aromatic aldehydes in acetic acid yielded the corresponding 5,5'-(pyridine-2,6-diyl)bis(4-arylideneamino-3-mercapto-1,2,4-triazole) derivatives. The structures of the synthesized compounds as well as their intermediates were confirmed by elemental analysis, infrared(More)
Diacetyl is a natural byproduct of fermentation and known to be an important flavor compound in many food products. Because of the potential undesirable effects of diacetyl on health safety and beer flavor, determination of its concentration in beer samples is essential and its analytical methods have attracted close attention recently. The aim of the(More)
