This paper describes microextraction and gas chromatographic analysis of diazepam from human plasma. The method was based on immobilisation of 1.5 microliters of 1-octanol on a polyacrylate-coated fiber designed for solid-phase microextraction. The solvent-modified fibre was used to extract diazepam
