The cartridge was preconditioned with 0.5 mL toluene and each of the above benzodiazepine solutions passed through it. Analytes retained on the MIP were eluted with 0.5 mL of 15% acetic acid in acetonitrile. Internal standard (corresponding deuterated benzodiazepine) was added and subjected to LC/MS/MS. The results obtained for recovery, limit of detection (LOD), and quantitation (LOQ) are shown in Table 1.22. The binding capacity of diazepam to the templated MIP was found to be 110 ng/mg polymer. The same results were obtained for postmortem hair samples.

Diazepam and its nordiazepam, oxazepam, and temazepam metabolites are well retained by the MIP, while they are much less retained on NIP, also exhibiting large RSD. Other benzodiazepines of similar structures (Figure 1.50) were well retained on the MIP, showing that this template can be used for the general class of benzodiazepines. Two benzodiazepines studied, chlordiazepoxide and flunitrazepam, were poorly retained, indicating poor fit of these structures into the templated MIP.
