Rapid ionic liquid-supported nano-hybrid composite reinforced hollow-fiber electromembrane extraction followed by field-amplified sample injection-capillary electrophoresis: An effective approach for extraction and quantification of Imatinib mesylate in human plasma.

PMID 28826620


The focus of this study is development of a new, convenient, rapid and sensitive electromembrane extraction approach (based on an ionic liquid-supported MWCNTs/ZnO reinforced hollow fiber, for the first time) as an off-line sample clean-up/preconcentration method coupled with capillary electrophoresis (CE-UV) using field-amplified sample injection (FASI) for quantification of Imatinib mesylate in human plasma. The nano-hybrid sorbent, coated by 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide ionic liquid ([OMIm]Br) in this research, was prepared by a feasible basic catalyzed sol-gel method. Then, it was immobilized (supported by capillary forces and sonication) in pores of a segment of a polypropylene hollow fiber membrane as the extraction unit after dispersing in 2-nitrophenyl octyl ether (NPOE) solvent and subsequently served as the supported liquid membrane (SLM) composition. Significant variables affecting the proposed method were evaluated and optimized to achieve the maximum extraction performance. Optimal conditions were obtained by NPOE with 4mgmL
