A new method of quantification of pipemidic-acid by capillary zone electrophoresis with end-column amperometric detection.Electrophoresis. 2000 Mar; 21(5):925-9.E
Capillary zone electrophoresis was employed for the determination of pipemidic acid using an end-column amperometric detection with a carbon fiber microdisk array electrode, at a constant potential of -1.10 V vs. saturated calomel electrode. The optimum conditions of separation and detection were 1.2 x 10(-4) mol/LNaOAc - 8.8 x 10(-4) mol/ LHOAc for the buffer solution, 20 kV for the separation voltage, 5 kV and 10 s for the injection voltage and the injection time. The limit of detection was 1.05 x 10(-7) mol/L or 189 amol (S/N=3). The relative standard deviation was 0.31% for the migration time and 2.0% for the electrophoretic peak current. The method was applied to determining pipemidic acid in human serum.
