Abstract
Cloud point extraction was used to extract mefenamic acid (MF) from human urine, and spectrofluorimetry and spectrophotometry were used to analyze extracted MF. The variables affecting extraction and phase separation, i.e. HCl and Triton X-114 concentration, temperature and time of equilibration, were optimized. Under the experimental conditions used the limit of detection for extraction of 25 mL of sample was 0.006 and 0.045 mg L-1, with relative standard deviations of 2.52 and 1.45% (n = 5) for spectrofluorimetric or spectrophotometric methods, respectively. Good recoveries in the range of 95-107% were obtained for spiked samples. The proposed methods were applied to the determination of MF in human urine.
