A simple, rapid, sensitive and inexpensive method has been developed for the determination of ethylenediamine (EDA) in European Union food simulants. The method involves precolumn derivatization with ortho-phthaldehyde (OPA) and 2-mercaptoethanol (ME) to obtain a fluorescent derivative. Liquid chromatographic (HPLC) elution was achieved with methanol… CONTINUE READING
