Determination of trace tetracyclines by aluminum hydroxide coprecipitation coupled with HPLC-UV
What is it about?
A method for determination of trace tetracyclines based on aluminum hydroxide coprecipitation coupled with HPLC-UV detection was developed. It possesses the advantages such as efficient, rapid, simple, sensitive and environmentally friendly. The method was applied to river water and lake water samples, with satisfactory recoveries.
Why is it important?
Trace tetracyclines in surface water was more effectively coprecipitated with aluminum, than with magnesium. It may attract the attentions of analytical chemists and environmental chemists, so on.
