Abstract

A method is described for extracting lupin alkaloid (sparteine) and drug metabolites from different matrices (seeds and rat faeces) using microwave energy and for checking the homogeneity of the electric field in the microwave oven. The high-performance liquid chromatographic separation and determination of the extracted compounds showed that the microwave extraction method is more advantageous than other traditional extraction methods with regard to the yield of extraction and the time and cost of the procedure. The potential degradation of the extracted compounds may be considerably reduced.
