Enantioselective gas chromatographic assays with electron-capture detection for methoxyphenamine and its three primary metabolites in human urine.


PMID 2715275

Abstract

Sensitive and enantioselective gas chromatographic assays have been developed and applied to the quantitation in human urine of the enantiomers of methoxyphenamine and its three primary oxidative metabolites, namely, N-desmethylmethoxyphenamine, O-desmethylmethoxyphenamine and 5-hydroxymethoxyphenamine. The separation of the various analytes was achieved through the combined use of high-resolution gas chromatography coupled with electron-capture detection and employing a capillary OV-225 column. The formation of diastereometric derivatives involved the chiral acylating reagent N-heptafluorobutyryl-L-prolyl chloride. The assays for methoxyphenamine and O-desmethylmethoxyphenamine were linear over the range 0.25-2.0 micrograms/ml for each analytes' enantiomers, while in the case of the enantiomers for N-desmethylmethoxyphenamine and 5-hydroxymethoxyphenamine linearity was shown over the ranges 0.094-0.75 and 0.188-1.5 micrograms/ml, respectively. The mean coefficients of variation in all cases were less than 4%.
