We have developed a simple, rapid, selective and sensitive method for detecting the antitumour agent cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) (cisplatin) (CDDP) and its toxic impurities trans-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) (transplatin) (TDDP) amminetri-chloroplatinat (ATCP) anion using HPLC in one run. By using 4-methyl-2-thiouracil (MTU) as a derivatizing agent, new compounds have been formed from the Pt compounds and separated on a mu-Bondapak C-18 column with isocratic elution and detection at 315 nm.
