ABSTRACT
A novel flow injection analysis (FIA) method with Rayleigh light scattering (RLS) detection was developed for the determination of total protein concentrations. This method is based on the weak intensity of RLS of bromothymol blue (BB) (3′,3″-dibromothymolsulfonephthalein) which can be enhanced by the addition of protein in weakly acidic solution. A common spectrofluorimeter was used as a detector. It was proved that the application of this method to quantify the total proteins in real samples by using bovine serum albumin was possible. The RLS signal was detected at λex=λem=572 nm. The linear range was 7.0–70.0 μg mL-1, the detection limit was 3.75 μg mL-1, the reproducibility was 5.5% (n=7), and the sample throughput was 26 h-1.
