Anal Biochem. 1985 Nov 1;150(2):463-70.The use of bonded-phase phenylboronic acid columns to selectively extract 2,3-dinor-thromboxane B2 and thromboxane B2 from urine is reported. The compounds were first derivatized as the methoxime and then applied to the phenylboronic acid columns. Subsequent purification by thin-layer chromatography and derivatization to the pentafluorobenzyl ester, trimethylsilyl ether followed by capillary gas chromatography-negative-ion chemical ionization mass spectrometry, monitoring specific ions, allows quantitation in the low-picogram/milliliter range.
