vitamin c calibration of two fruits

Pilar Viñas, María Bravo-Bravo, Ignacio López-García, Manuel Hernández-Córdoba
A detailed optimization of dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) was carried out for developing liquid chromatographic (HPLC) techniques, using both fluorescence and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometric (APCI-MS) detection, for the simultaneous analysis of preforms of vitamin A: retinol (R), retinyl acetate (RA), retinyl palmitate (RP) and β-carotene (β-C). The HPLC analyses were carried out using a mobile phase composed of methanol and water, with gradient elution. The APCI-MS and fluorescence spectra permitted the correct identification of compounds in the analyzed samples...

A reliable method for the determination of total vitamin C must be able to resolve ascorbic acid (AA) and the epimeric isoascorbic acid (IAA) and determine the sum of AA and its oxidized form dehydroascorbic acid. AA and IAA are polar molecules with a low retention time in conventional reversed phase systems, and hence of difficult resolution. Hydrophilic interaction chromatography using a TSKgel Amide-80 stationary phase with isocratic elution was successful in resolving the two epimers. The column was compatible with injections of high concentrations of metaphosphoric acid, tris(2-carboxyethyl)-phosphine, and EDTA without drift of baseline and retention time...

A new method for quantitative analysis of vitamin C in biological and chemical liquids was proposed. The method is based on the use of dual molecule consisting of a fluorescent chromophore and a nitroxide radical. In the dual molecule, the nitroxide acts as a quencher of the fluorescence of the chromophore fragment. Reduction of the nitroxide fragment by ascorbic acid results in decay of ESR signal and enhancement of the fluorescence. By performing the series of pseudo-first-order reactions between the dual molecule and ascorbic acid and consequent plotting rate constants versus ascorbic acid concentrations the calibration curves for the vitamin C analysis were obtained...
