Characterization of metabolites of clozapine N-oxide in the rat by micro-column high performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry with electrospray interface

, : Characterization of metabolites of clozapine N-oxide in the rat by micro-column high performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry with electrospray interface. Journal Of Pharmaceutical & Biomedical Analysis. 14(11): 1561-1577

The metabolism of clozapine N-oxide was investigated in the rat (n = 6) after a single oral dose of 20 mg kg-1. The organic extracts of rat urine were separated by conventional high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and individual collected fractions were analyzed by micro-column electrospray HPLC/mass spectroscopy. The compounds identified in rat urine were clozapine N-oxide, clozapine, N-desmethylclozapine, 8-deschloro-8-hydroxyclozapine, 8-deschloro-8-thiomethylclozapine, N-desmethylclozapine, 8-deschloro-8-hydroxyclozapine, 8-deschloro-8-thiomethylclozapine, N-desmethyl-8-deschloro-8-thiomethylclozapine and 8-deschloro-8-methylsulfinylclozapine. With the exception of the unchanged clozapine N-oxide, no other metabolite containing a N-oxide functional group could be found, the concentrations of clozapine N-oxide, clozapine and N-desmethylclozapine excreted from rat urine were determined utilizing a conventional HPLC procedure with UV detection. The recoveries of these three analytes reported as the percentage of the dosage from the 0.24 h urine are 0.93 +/- 0.54%, 0.06 +/- 0.03% and 0.01 +/- 0.006% respectively.
