Abstract

This study demonstrates an untested link between model phenolic compounds and the formation/electrophoretic separation of stable urinary metabolites. Sterically encumbered carbonyl groups were examined, and mass determination was used to confirm the presence and stability of two oxidative metabolites of pentachlorophenol: tetrachloro-1,2-benzoquinone and tetrachloro-1,4-dihydroquinone. Subsequently, baseline resolved separation of pentachlorophenol and the two oxidative metabolites was demonstrated under the following conditions: 75 mM sodium tetraborate buffer (pH = 8.5) with 5 % methanol and 50 mM SDS, +10.0 kV running voltage, injection time = 5.0 s, effective capillary length = 55 cm, and run temperature = 20 °C. Results not only provide key metabolic inferences for pentachlorophenol, they also exhibit improvements in the ability to separate and detect changes in urinary metabolites in response to phenolic-related exposure.
