A capillary electrophoretic method for the enantiomer resolution of deprenyl and its main alkaline metabolites amphetamine, methamphetamine and propargylamphetamine is described. An acidic separation buffer with a suitable chiral complexing agent, heptakis-(2,6-di-O-methyl)-β-cyclodextrin, was used and the optimum separation conditions were determined by changing the concentration of the chiral selector, the applied electric field and the concentration of methanol.
