The determination of volatile solvents and their metabolites in biological materials such as expired air, blood or urine allows the estimation of the degree of exposure of these chemicals.
Chromatographic methods are now universally employed for this purpose and numerous analytical procedures are available for the determination of the most commonly used volatile solvents and their metabolites in urine.
GC methods appear well adapted to the determination of the parent volatile solvents in blood and urine and may be used for the determination of their urinary metabolites, but these methods often require several prechromatographic steps.
However, HPLC is becoming a powerful tool for the acourate and easy determination of urinary metabolites of volatile solvents, considering its decisive advantages for routine monitoring.
