A capillary electrophoretic method has been developed for the separation and determination of vanillin, ferulic acid, vanillic acid and 4-vinylguaiacol in Japanese spirituous liquor. These phenolic compounds were extracted from Japanese spirituous liquor by solid-phase extractioin and were successfully separated
