Abstract: Flow injection sample processing is used with fluorescence detection for the determination of total primary amines in seawater and nectar. The effects of carrifer stream flow rate and dispersion tube length on sensitivity and sampling rates were studied. Relative responses of several amino acids and other primary amines were determined using two dispersion tube lengths. Linear calibration curves were obtained over the ranges 0-10^-6 M and O-1O-5 M glycine. Precisions of better than 2% at 10^-6 M and a detection limit of 1 x lO-8 M glycine were obtained. Applications to the analysis of seawater from the vicinity of a baited lobster trap and diluted nectar samples from Erythrina sp. are described.
