Asymmetric NG,–NG-dimethylarginine (ADMA) increases in diseases such as renal failure, diabetes mellitus, and hypercholesterolemia. The feasibility and utility of a hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) method for the separation of free Larginine (Arg), ADMA, and symmetric NG,–NG9-dimethylarginine (SDMA) on a typical silica column were explored and the impact of some experimental parameters on the chromatographic behavior of these analytes was investigated. The effect of water and TFA content in mobile phase and of column temperature was investigated during the development of a fast and simple HILIC-MS/MS method that might be suitable for the quantification of free Arg, ADMA, and SDMA in plasma for routine analysis. Our results show that a good compromise between efficiency and peak shape with acceptable retention and total chromatographic run time is achieved using an ACN/water (90:10) mobile phase with TFA% as additive ranging from 0.015 to 0.025% and column temperature ranging from 25 to.....
