ABSTRACT

A new analytical method that uses high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detector (HPLC-DAD) was developed for the analysis of 14 benzimidazoles residues, including metabolites, in bovine liver. Samples were extracted using two different extraction procedures: with phosphate buffer after enzymatic hydrolysis (method A) or using organic solvent, i.e. acetonitrile (method B). Then, samples were purified on a strong cation exchange (SCX) cartridge and analyzed in HPLC/DAD. The recovery percentages, obtained spiking the matrix (liver) at concentrations of 500 and 100 microg kg(-1) with a standard mixture of benzimidazoles, were in the range 6-101% and 80-102% for methods A and B, respectively. The repeatability of the methods was assessed in all cases by the % of correlation value (CV) that was lower than 19%. The limits of quantification (LOQs) in the matrix for methods A and B were in the range 40-60 and 20-50 microg kg(-1), respectively. The best of the two methods, method B, was used for the analysis of 10 bovine liver samples.
