Determination of Methylene Blue Residues in Aquatic Products
1. Application range
This standard prescribes a HPLC method for the determination of methylene blue residue in aquatic products.
This standard is applicable to the determination and confirmation of methylene blue residues in fish, shrimp and their products. (The sample of this experiment is Longli Fish)

2. Extraction steps
Sample pretreatment: crush the sample by mixer, then store it in refrigerator.
Weigh 5g fish sample (accurate to 0.01 g) in 50 mL centrifuge tube. Add 5 g of neutral alumina, 1 mL of p-toluenesulfonic acid solution and 4 mL of sodium acetate buffer solution in turn, vortex for 1 min. Add 8 mL acetonitrile, homogenize at 10000 r/min for 2 min, then centrifuge at 4000 r/min for 5 min. Transfer the supernatant to another 50 mL centrifuge tube, add 4 mL acetonitrile to extract residue again and combine the supernatant. Add 8 mL diethylene glycol solution and 10 mL dichloromethane to the supernatant, vortex for 1 min at 4000 r/min and centrifuge for 5 min. Collect the lower organic layer in the concentration flask at 40℃, rotate and evaporate to near dry, then add 6 mL acetonitrile to dissolve the residue to be purified.
3. Purification steps
SPE column: Welchrom®Alumina-N column, specification :500 mg/3mL
Activation :3 mL acetonitrile, discard
Injection: collect after injecting all the purified liquid
Flushing :2 mL acetonitrile, collect
Elution :4 mL methanol, collect
Concentration: blow with nitrogen to near dry at 40℃, add 10% methanol solution to have a constant volume of 1 mL, then filter through 0.22μm microporous membrane for test
4. Chromatographic conditions
Column: Ultisil®XB-C18 4.6×150 mm,5μm
