A Versatile GHB Method for Headspace or Liquid Injection
28 Jun 2012
System contamination is a significant issue for labs analyzing gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) as typical methods include derivatization and liquid injection. Here, an acid conversion solvent extraction method is evaluated for compatibility with both headspace and liquid injection techniques. This extraction method can improve lab efficiency and reduce contamination by eliminating the use of derivatization reagents.
