Abstract

In this work, a combined flow injection–photo thermal lens microscopy (FI-PTLM) system was used for highly sensitive determination of captopril as an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. Captopril has no absorption in the visible range, but due to its thiol group could interact with gold nanoparticles (GNPs). GNPs, because of their surface plasmon resonance (SPR), have absorption in the visible range, but their interaction with a low concentration of captopril shows no effective change in UV–Vis spectrophotometry because their aggregation is slight. On the contrary, at the same condition, the PTLM with a visible light source enables sensitive measurement of this compound. The thiol group of captopril binds to the surface of GNPs and decreases the SPR. At the optimum condition in the focal volume of 2.68 fL (f=1015), the obtained range of linearity was 50–800 nM. The developed method was successfully applied for the determination of captopril in human serum and pharmaceutical samples.
