Chiral CE was successfully applied to the separation and quantification of catechin, epicatechin and ascorbic acid in some commercial drinks and human urine. Analysis involved the separation of analytes in less than 5.0 min at 240 nm with an untreated fused-silica capillary under hydrodynamic injection mode. The running buffer consisted of 50 mM borate buffer with 3 mM beta-CD at pH 8.35. Detection limits for catechin, epicatechin and ascorbic acid were 0.028, 0.011 and 0.004 microg/mL, respectively. Linearity was investigated by selecting the ranges of calibration according to the amount of analytes in urine giving correlation coefficient percent (% r(2)) ranging between 99.4 and 99.6 at 99% confidence level. The maximum urinary excretion of catechin and epicatechin were noted at 2.0 and 4.0 h of the administrated dose. Unchanged catechin, epicatechin and ascorbic acid amounted to about 1.500, 8.696 and 0.003% of the administered dose in the 48.0 h urine collection. The proposed method achieved 99.2% completeness (n = 20) in urine media.
