In order to improve the drug effectiveness, especially for the requirement of malignant brain tumors in BNCT clinical trial, it is reasonable to use BSH in conjunction with BPA. Introduction BSH has higher boron content, penetrate into the brain tumors but not normal brain. It depends on the destruction of BBB (Blood-Brain Barrier) and 10 B concentration in the blood. BPA is active uptake into tumors through amino acid transporter. When the accumulation of BPA in the tumors is low, the combination of BSH is effective. Although total 10 B concentration from both of BSH and BPA accumulated in the tumors can be calculated such as ICP method, PGA-SPECT, it is disable to ascertain 10 B origin. ● Thus, a suitable method by LC/MS for the individual quantitation of BSH and BPA is studied in this work.
Why LC/MS? LC/MS system schematic diagram -Chemical compounds are separated by retention time depending on the interactions of the sample with the mobile phase and column by LC. -The mass spectrometer works by ionizing molecules and then sorting and identifying the ions according to their m/z (mass-to-charge ratios).+ LC/MS = HPLCMS
Objectives To develop an optimum separation condition for BSH and BPA by LC, including the discussion of solubility condition of standard solution, selection of mobile phase and column. To perform the compounds identification and quantitation of BSH and BPA. Keywords: Separation and Quantitation to confirm applicability for blood by LC/MS.
Standard solution in water of 10 B-enriched BSH and BPA were used to investigation of the analytical condition for LC/MS. Experiment (1) ～ Preparation of standard solution ～ BSH was able to dissolve into water, methanol, acetonitrile directly. BPA was optimized for dissolution completely by using ultra- sonication for 6h into water and methanol, but not able to dissolve into acetonitrile. ※ Saturated solubility for BPA is 1.6mg/ml in water （ 25 ℃） Both of the concentration for BSH and BPA were adjusted to 1000ppm as a stock solution dissolved into ultrapure water and corresponding content were adjusted by following dilution. Preliminary experiment for solubility condition Stock solution preparation ※ Methanol, acetonitrile are popularly used as LC/MS solvents.
(1) The mobile phase for LC is selected methanol loaded with 5mM DHAA, as an ion-pair regent. (2) The chromatography was performed by a Shim-pack FC-ODS column, packing with small particle size of 3μm for high resolution. Experiment (2) ～ Selection of mobile phase and column ～ Dihexylammonium Acetate (0.5mol/L in Water) Molecular formula: C 14 H 31 NO 2 Molecular weight : ・ CH 3 COOH DHAA (For LC/MS) R 2 － NH 2 X - + To improve ESI response for increasing sensitivity. To enhance the hydrophobic of BSH. To provide sufficient retention and separation selectivity.

Precision and accuracy for measurement of human plasma was calculated. The precision was evaluated using three determinations at three concentration levels spread over entire linear range.
Conclusions Precision, accuracy for measurement of normal human plasma show the pretreatment of blood and this analytical method for separation and quantitation of BSH and BPA work very well. The calibration curves for standard solution were linear over a concentration range of ppm for BSH and ppm for BPA. Linearity was also proven normal human plasma loaded with BSH and BPA. From these observations, it can be concluded that this analytical technology for separation and quantitation of BSH and BPA is available and we expect to implement for the whole blood analysis.
