Abstract: A sensitive liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) bioanalytical method was developed and validated to analyze lipoic acid (LA) in rat blood and brain samples. Ten mobile phase combinations were investigated during method development. Mobile phase combination of 0.1% acetic acid (pH 4 adjusted with ammonia solution)/acetonitrile was most optimum in terms of sensitivity and peak shape of LA and the internal standard, valproic acid. Sample extraction method was explored using liquid-liquid extraction and protein precipitation methods. Protein precipitation yielded the highest recovery of the analytes from blood and brain ranging from 92 to 115%. The lower limit of quantitation (LLOQ) of LA was 0.1 ng/mL (0.485 nM) in both blood and brain while on-column lower limit of detection (LLOD) was 0.03 pg. The precision (% R.S.D.) ranged from 1.49 to 26.39% and 1.49 to 10.89% for intra- and inter-day assays, respectively. The accuracy ranged from 91.2 to 116.17% for intra-day assay and 102.68 to 114.33% for inter-day assay. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
