Abstract

Methods for the assay of nicotinic acid (NiAc) and its metabolites in biological fluids using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and capillary electrophoresis (CE) are reviewed. Most of the references cited in this review concern HPLC methods. A few CE methods that have been recently reported are also included. As these compounds are relatively polar and have a wide range of physico-chemical properties, the sample pre-treatment or clean-up process prior to analysis is included. Most HPLC methods using an isocratic elution system allow determination of a single or few metabolites, but gradient HPLC methods enable simultaneous determination of five to eight compounds. Simultaneous determination of NiAc including many metabolites in a single run can be achieved by CE. We also discuss the pharmacokinetics of NiAc and some of its metabolites.
