A sorbent (ethylsilane (C2) modified silica) (20mg) was packed in a porous polypropylene envelope (2cm×1.5cm) whose edges were heat sealed to secure the contents. The μ-SPE device was conditioned with acetone and placed in a stirred (1:5) diluted cyst fluid sample solution (10mL) to extract estrogens for 60min. After extraction, the analytes were desorbed and simultaneously derivatized with a 5:1 mixture of acetone and N,O-bis(trimethylsilyl)-trifluoroacetamide. The extract (2μL) was analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Various extraction, desorption and derivatization conditions were optimized for μ-SPE. With this simple technique, low limits of detection of between 9 and 22ngL-1 and linear range from the detection limits up to 50μgL-1 were achieved. The optimized method was used to extract estrogens from cyst fluid samples obtained from patients with malignant and benign ovarian tumors. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.||Source Title:||Analytica Chimica Acta||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/93129||ISSN:||00032670||DOI:||10.1016/j.aca.2010.12.007|
