Stereoselective HPLC assay of TJ0711 enantiomers by precolumn derivatization with GITC using UV detection and its application in pharmacokinetics in rats.

PMID 19662356


This investigation describes a new precise, sensitive and accurate stereoselective RP-HPLC method for determination of the enantiomers of a novel alpha- and beta-receptor blocking agent, 1-[4-(2-methoxyethyl) phenoxy]-3-[[2-(2- methoxyphenoxy) ethyl]amino]-2-propanol (TJ0711), in rat plasma. GITC was used for precolumn derivatization of TJ0711 enantiomers. Enantiomeric resolution was achieved on a Eurospher-100 C18 column (250 mm x 4.6 mm ID, 5-mum particle size), with UV detection at 255 nm, and the mobile phase consisted of acetonitrile and water (58:42, v/v) containing 0.02% glacial acetic acid (v/v). Using the chromatographic conditions described, TJ0711 enantiomers were well resolved with mean retention time of 10.2 and 11.5 min, respectively. Linear response (r>0.999) was observed over the range of 0.125-12.5 microg/mL of TJ0711 hydrochloride enantiomers. The mean relative standard deviation (RSD%) of the results of within-day precision was < or = 10%. The proposed method was found to be suitable and accurate for the quantitative determination of TJ0711 enantiomers in rat plasma, and it can be used in pharmacokinetic studies.
