Abstract: A rapid and simple capillary electrophoresis (CE) method was developed to determine 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) in samples of commercial dietary supplements. The optimized background electrolyte (BGE) was composed by 20 mmol L?1 sodium phosphate (pH 10) and 0.2 mmol L?1 cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) for electroosmotic flow inversion. The limits of detection (LOD) and quantification (LOQ) for 5-HTP were 3.1 and 10.1 ?mol L?1, respectively. The analytical curve demonstrated linearity over a concentration range of 0 500 ?mol L?1 with a correlation coefficient (R2) of 0.9995. The intraday instrumental precision (repeatability) as relative standard deviation (RSD) in terms of peak area and migration time of the 5-HTP were 2.2 and 1.9% (n = 8), respectively. The CE method was applied to the analysis of four different samples of commercial dietary supplements and the RSD (n = 3) for the determinations ranged from 2 to 3%. The accuracy of the method was evaluated comparing the measured 5-HTP concentrations to those obtained by a high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method. The relative error ranged from 0 to 5.9% (n = 3) and no significant differences between the concentrations were observed at a confidence level of 95%. © 2014 Sociedade Brasileira de Química.
