Derivatization of six pharmaceutical substances (catopril, metoclopramide, sotalol, hydrochlorothiazide, nalidixic acid, and stavudine) has been performed using five derivatizing reagents of different types; the derivatization has been followed by the GC/MS detection of the resultant products. The number of labile hydrogen atoms in the initial molecules substituted by the structural fragments of derivatizing reagents has been determined.
