Recebido em 1/2/02; aceito em 14/2/03 2,5-HEXANODIONE DETERMINATION IN URINE SAMPLES SUBJECTED TO ACID HYDROLYSIS: RELEVANCE OF THE CHROMATOGRAPHIC COLUMN AND THE pH. Acidic hydrolysis of samples is frequent in urinary 2,5-hexanodione determination. This hydrolysis should be performed under proper conditions, in order to avoid interference, such as the presence of 2,5-dimethylfurane and 2-acetylfurane. The results of the present work, as well as data from the literature, show that the use of

In the same way the pH should be kept between 0.3 and 0.5. The mean concentrations of 2,5-HD in samples submitted to hydrolysis (0.50 ± 0.28 mg/g of creatinine) was about 3 times higher than those found in the samples without acid hydrolysis (0.19 ± 0.3 mg/g of creatinine).
