L-Deprenyl and its major metabolites were subjected to reversed-phase highperformance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The separation was monitored using both ultraviolet (UV) and electrochemical detectors. Ultraviolet absorbance detected L-deprenyl, L-nordeprenyl, L-methamphetamine, and L-amphetamine. Amperometric detection was specific and sensitive to the parent compound (L-deprenyl, a tertiary amine) only. Peaks of the major L-deprenyl metabolites did not give any comparable signal using amperometric monitoring.
