Abstract: The (±)-threo-methylphenidate ((±)-threo-MP) is widely used for treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). According to clinical evidence, (+)-threo-MP possesses higher potency than (-)-threo-MP. Due to ppb level in plasma, till now, none of the capillary electrophoresis (CE) methods have been able to provide adequate sensitivity for therapeutic (±)-threo-MP monitoring. In this study, a cyclodextrin-modified field-amplified sample stacking CE method (CD-FASS-CE) for enantioseparation of (±)-…
