Profens, including pranoprofen, fenoprofen, flurbiprofen, ketoprofen and ibuprofen (Ib), were derivatized by a water-soluble benzofurazan fluorescent reagent, 4-N-(4-N'-aminoethyl)piperazino-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole and then were run on capillary electrophoresis in a NH4Ac-HAc buffer of pH 3.1 containing 2.4 mM beta-cyclodextrin. At room temperature, the derivatization reaction was catalyzed by triphenyl phosphine and diphenyl disulfide in acetonitrile medium, and the derivatives fluoresce around 530 nm when excited at 488 nm. With the CE running on a 50 cm x 50 microm I.D. length fused-silica capillary of by using Ar+ laser induced-fluorescence detection, the detection limits attained were in the range of 0.16 to 0.3 fmol.
