A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method is described for the determination of apigenin and the 4'-methylated derivative acacetin in human urine using column-switching and ultraviolet (UV) absorbance detection. Urine samples were enzymatically hydrolysed and solid-phase extracted prior to injection onto the HPLC system. Prior to elution of apigenin and the internal standard, 5,7,8-trihydroxyflavone, from the first column used for sample clean-up, the six-port valve was switched to the second column for analysis with UV detection. Detection of apigenin was precise and reproducible, with a limit of quantification of 10 ngml-1 urine. Detection and quantification of acacetin was linear down to 70 ngml-1 urine. The method has been successfully applied to determine the level of apigenin in 100 human urine samples from an intervention study with parsley. Copyright (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
