Abstract: For the determination of primary alkylamines in the presence of secondary alkylamines, samples were subjected to HPLC on a column (15 cm x 4.6 mm) of a styrene - divinylbenzene copolymer (5 µm) with methanol as mobile phase (0.5 mL min-1). Primary amines in the eluate were derivatized at 45°C with 58 mM phthalaldehyde and 58 mM 2-mercaptoethanol in ethyl acetate (0.5 mL min-1), the solution was mixed with ethyl acetate (0.5 mL min-1) in two knitted PTFE tubes (100 cm x 0.8 mm) and the fluorescence was measured at 431 nm in a 7 µL flow cell (excitation at 340 nm). The detection limit of decylamine was 0.18 mM. Procedures are also described for the selective determination of secondary amines [by derivatization with 7-chloro-4-nitrobenzofurazan and fluorimetry at 525 nm (excitation at 480 nm)] after masking of primary amines and for non-selective determination of primary and secondary amines. The procedures were used to analyze Synprolam 35DM surfactant, containing 98% of tertiary amines and 1% each of primary and secondary amines.

Abstract: This study compares the performances of two mass-spectrometric ionization techniques, i.e. fast-atom bombardment (FAB) and ion-spray ionization (ISI), in the simultaneous quantitation of dodecyl-, tetradecyl- and hexadecyltrimethylammonium halides in aqueous media. Continuous-flow FAB and flow injection analysis (FIA)-ISI, both in selected-ion monitoring and selected-reaction monitoring modes, were evaluated. Quantitation was performed by dilution with deuterium-labeled homologues synthesized by a simple procedure. A comparison of the data indicated FIA-ISI as the more sensitive (limit of detection = 10 ppb). Good linearity, precision and accuracy were obtained by the tested techniques in the concentration. range 0.125-4.0 ng µL-1. Hair softeners, commercial surfactant mixtures and hematol. lysing reagents were used as test samples.
