ABSTRACT
This paper reports on preliminary results of quantitative determination of 1,3-dichloropropane-2-ol, one of the toxicants from the group of chloropropanols present in some foodstuffs, especially in soy sauce, by means of the high performance liquid chromatography. The aim of our study was to investigate and introduce a relatively inexpensive and simple method for screening of the studied analyte in food and environmental samples with the aid of the UV absorbing and fluorescent derivatives. The UV spectrophotometric and fluorimetric detectors were applied. The presented procedure could be applied in a number of cases for screening of suspected alimentary products before the use of more laborious and expensive GC-MS methods.
