High performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence and ultraviolet detection of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons in barley malt.

A simple, rapid method has been developed for the separation and determination of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in barley malt. An ultrasonic-cyclohexane extraction method was used to separate the PAHs from ground barley malt. The cyclohexane extracts were purified by chromatography through a water-deactivated silica gel-alumina column. The… CONTINUE READING
