Abstract: This paper describes the analysis of piperazine-type stimulants [1-benzylpiperazine (BZP), 1-(3-trifluoromethylphenyl)piperazine (TFMPP), 1-(3-chlorophenyl)piperazine (mCPP) and 1-(4-methoxyphenyl)piperazine (MeOPP)] in low volume urine samples (0.1 mL) by microextraction in packed sorbent and liquid chromatography-diode array detection. Analyte extraction has been comprehensively optimized, and the influencing factors were screened by means of the fractional factorial design approach. Several parameters susce…
