Development of a packed-column supercritical fluid chromatography/atmospheric pressure chemical-ionisation mass spectrometric technique for the analysis of atropine.

A packed-column supercritical fluid chromatography/atmospheric pressure chemical-ionisation mass spectrometry (pSFC-APCI/MS) method has been developed for the determination of atropine from Atropa belladonna L extracts. The technique does not require any kind of derivatisation prior to the analysis. The optimum conditions were studied by using the pure substance in methanol (MeOH). All samples were simply dissolved in MeOH and injected into the mobile phase. Detection was achieved by using mass spectrometry (MS) with atmospheric pressure chemical ionisation (APCI). Terbutaline was used as an internal standard for the determination of the analytical reproducibility. The supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) mobile phase was modified by 15% MeOH containing 0.5% trifluoroacetic acid (TFAA) and 0.5% diethylamine (DEA) additives. Concentrations of atropine were determined with a relative standard deviation of less than 1% by the pSFC-APCI/MS procedure for a sample containing atropine and terbutaline. The correlation coefficient was 0.997 and detection limit 700 pg. The absolute retention time was 9.87 min with a standard deviation of 5.2x10(-3) min and a relative standard deviation of 0.61% with respect to terbutaline.[1]
