Micellar electrokinetic. chromatography (MEKC) was used to separate components of hop extracts. The separation of a sample of iso-alpha -acids by MEKC was better and faster than by an established HPLC method, giving <0.8 % RSD on migration times and 5-10% RSD on peak areas. MEKC was also successfully used to separate the oxidation products of the - and beta -acids and thus to monitor the stability of hop products containing them. Furthermore, MEKC distinguished among samples of reduced iso-alpha -acids (rho-, tetrahydro- and hexahydro- derivatives). (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
