Determination of bromhexine in plasma by reversed-phase liquid chromatography. Interference of lipoproteins on extraction.

Extraction of the hydrophobic tertiary amine bromhexine from plasma using cyclohexane-heptafluorobutanol (99.5:0.5, v/v) was studied at different pH values. The extraction yield from buffer solutions was quantitative at pH greater than 4.1, but from plasma the extraction yield decreased with increasing pH. Furthermore, at pH 8.4 the extraction yield varied greatly (56-99%) in different human plasma. The addition of lipoproteins to phosphate buffer, at pH 8.1, decreased the extraction yields considerably. Quantitative extraction from plasma was obtained by using a very long extraction time at pH 8.4 or by decreasing the pH to 5. 4. The chromatographic system consisted of a reversed-phase column (Nucleosil C18, 5 microns) with an acidic mobile phase (methanol-phosphate buffer, pH 2) containing an aliphatic tertiary amine. UV detection at 308 or 254 nm was used. The limit of quantitation was 5 ng/ml using 3.00 ml of plasma and detection at 254 nm. The intra-assay precision for bromhexine was better than 3.6% at 5 ng/ml.[1]
