Abstract

Supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) followed by packed column supercritical fluid chromatography with ultraviolet detection was evaluated as a quantitative method for determining 4 antifungals (fluconazole, tioconazole, hexaconazole, and UK-47,265) in rodent diet. Chromatography was achieved with a cyano-bonded silica column, UV detection at 210 nm, and methanol-modified supercritical carbon dioxide as mobile phase. The effects of modifier concentration, temperature, and column pressure on antifungal retention time was studied. Off-line SFE was optimized at 2 spike levels, ranging from 0.5 to 10 g/kg, for each of the 4 antifungals. Average recoveries ranged from 79.0% for UK-47,265 to 96.5% for hexaconazole. Overall, the procedure provides a suitable method for analyzing antifungals in spiked rodent diet.
