Liquid chromatography-electrochemical detection (LCEC) has been applied to the trace determination of drugs [chemical names below] termed cis-Pt, CBDCA and CHIP. cis-Pt, the parent compound, can be determined by either oxidative or reductive LCEC, with different detection limits. Both CBDCA and CHIP can be determined by direct LCEC, but the detection limits for CBDCA are too high for clinical or stability studies. With a new derivatization method for CBDCA and related Pt compounds CBDCA is quantitatively convertible to cis-Pt, determination of which by reductive LCEC allows CDDP assay in plasma at the 0.1 μ/ml level (100 ppb.)
