A high performance liquid chromatography - inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry interface employing desolvation for speciation studies of platinum in chemotherapy drugs.

A novel interface between high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is described. The eluent from the HPLC is nebulised into a heated cyclone spray-chamber and the solvent removed using a Nafion membrane drier, held at 75 degrees C, and a cryogenic condenser. The condenser consists of 6 Peltier… CONTINUE READING
