Abstract : A liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the analysis of N-Nitroso-N- ethylurea (ENU) in salt water by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Samples are injected directly onto a HPLC without sample preparation. Separation of ENU from possible interferences found in salt water was achieved using a C-18 DB column and a mobile phase containing methanol and water. A programmable ultra- violet detector was used to monitor the effluent for ENU. The stability of ENU in the sample matrix is examined at various concentrations and various pH values.
