ABSTRACT
Molecular size distribution patterns of Cu, Mn, Ni, and Zn were determined in several nut species by size-exclusion liquid chromatography (SEC) coupled on-line to UV and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP–MS) for detection. The molecular weight (MW) fractionation of the different metals was performed with a Superdex Peptide column, injecting 100 μL of the extracted solutions. The association of the elements with different MW fractions was observed with sequential detection by UV and ICP–MS. Various separation conditions were evaluated to obtain proper resolution and reproducible results with the size-exclusion column. Complete MW information of the elemental fractions in the nut samples was obtained within a retention time of 30 min. Fractionation of the above mentioned elements was done in nine different nut species commonly found in commercial markets. Variability of the fractionation patterns for two different extraction media, 0.05 mol L-1 NaOH and 0.05 mol L-1 HCl, was evaluated for every nut sample. Differences in the elemental fractionation patterns were found depending on the extraction procedure, nut species, and the type of element studied. It was also observed that the elements studied showed predominant association with high MW fractions when extracted with basic solution whereas with acidic extraction media only low MW fractions were obtained.
