Abstract

This paper describes a method for the determination of nine heterocyclic aromatic amines (HCAs) in commercial frozen meat products, which were sold in Turkey by ultrafast liquid chromatography (UFLC) with ultraviolet visible detection. HCAs are separated on a Shim-pack XR-ODS (7.5×3 mm, 2.2 μm). Varying levels

of 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (IQ) (up to 1.95 ng/g), 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (IQx) (up to 4.17 ng/g), 2-amino-3,4-dimethylimidazo[

4,5-f]quinoline (MeIQ) (up to 0.69 ng/g), 2-amino-3,8-dimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (MeIQx) (up to 0.83 ng/g), 2-amino-3,4,8-trimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (4,8-DiMeIQx) (up to 0.22 ng/g), 2-amino-3,7,8-trimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (7,8-DiMeIQx) (up to 0.94 ng/g), 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b] pyridine (PhIP) (up to 4.58 ng/g), 2-amino-9H-pyrido[2,3-b]indole (AαC) (up to 0.57 ng/g), and 2-amino-3-methyl-9H-pyrido[2,3-b]indole (MeAαC) (up to 3.51 ng/g) were detected in these commercial frozen meat products of Turkey. The data obtained show clearly that HCAs could be isolated in a very short time (5 min) by using UFLC.

This paper describes a method for the determination of nine heterocyclic aromatic amines (HCAs) in commercial frozen meat products, which were sold in Turkey by ultrafast liquid chromatography (UFLC) with ultraviolet visible detection.
