      Irena VOVK*, Gordana POPOVIC, Breda SIMONOVSKA, A. ALBREHT, Danica AGBABA (*National Inst. of Chem., Lab. for Food Chem., Hajdrihova 19, SI-1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia)

      J. of Chromatogr. A 1218 (20), 3089-3084 (2011). Comparison of the separation of the structurally related angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors lisinopril, cilazapril, ramipril and quinapril and their corresponding active diacid forms (prilates) by conventional TLC on silica gel with the separation on monolithic ultra-TLC (UTLC) phase. Technical modifications of the commercially available equipment for sample application, development and detection were necessary for the use with UTLC plates. Development in a modified horizontal developing chamber with ethyl acetate - acetone - acetic acid - water 16:4:1:2. Detection by absorbance measurement at 220 nm and after exposure to iodine vapors under daylight, as well as by image analysis. As a result the monolithic layer was more efficient for the separation of structurally similar polar compounds, such as prilates, than conventional silica layers. Confirmation of the identity of the compounds by ESI-MS after their online extraction from the UTLC and TLC plates.
