Abstract

The issues of the elaboration of a method for the determination of N-nitrosamines (N-nitrosodimethylamine, N-nitrosodiethylamine) in urine by means of the method of capillary gas chromatography with the use of a thermionic detector are considered. There were performed investigations on the study of the efficacy of the extraction of N-nitrosamines from the urine by steam distillation and gas chromatographic detection of headspace. With the aim of the maximal recovery of N-nitrosamines from the urine and setting parameters of the extraction two method were used to prepare the bioassay for the analysis the alkalization with potassium hydroxide and the addition of salting out reagent--neutral salts of alkali and alkaline earth metals. During the process of performed studies there was found that the greatest degree of extraction of N-nitrosamines from the urine by the method of headspace analysis is achieved if using the salting-out agent in an amount of 16 g of sodium sulfate and for N-nitrosodimethylamine is 99%, for N-nitrosodiethylamine--100%.
