An isocratic chromatographic separation with amperometric detection of underivatized amino acids at a copper oxyhydroxide modified glassy carbon electrode is described. A simple and sensitive quantitation procedure of amino acids without the need of tedious and time-consuming derivatization step was achieved by coupling anion-exchange chromatography with electrochemical detection. The effects of hydroxide, nitrate and acetonitrile concentration in the mobile phase on the capacity factors and peak resolution was evaluated. Under the optimized isocratic chromatographic conditions (i.e. 60 mM NaOH) and under constant applied potentials (i.e. 0.55 V versus Ag/AgCl) the detection limit ranged between 4 and 24 pmol injected and the linear dynamic range spanned generally over three or four order of magnitude for all investigated amino acid compounds. Direct determination of several common free amino acids in beer and milk samples were performed.

Abstract

An isocratic chromatographic separation with amperometric detection of underivatized amino acids at a copper oxyhydroxide modified glassy carbon electrode is described. A simple and sensitive quantitation procedure of amino acids without the need of tedious and time-consuming derivatization step was achieved by coupling anion-exchange chromatography with electrochemical detection. The effects of hydroxide, nitrate and acetonitrile concentration in the mobile phase on the capacity factors and peak resolution was evaluated. Under the optimized isocratic chromatographic conditions (i.e. 60 mM NaOH) and under constant applied potentials (i.e. 0.55 V versus Ag/AgCl) the detection limit ranged between 4 and 24 pmol injected and the linear dynamic range spanned generally over three or four order of magnitude for all investigated amino acid compounds. Direct determination of several common free amino acids in beer and milk samples were performed.
