Abstract A reliable chromatographic method for the determination of soy isoflavones (genistein, daidzein and glycitein) using a coulometric detection has been developed and applied to analyse plasma of postmenopausal women. The chromatographic separation was performed on a C18 reversed phase column with a mobile phase composed of acetonitrile-phosphate buffer mixture. Coulometric detection was carried out at +0.500 V. A careful and rapid solid phase extraction procedure on hydrophilic/lipophilic cartridges was chosen for plasma sample purification with and without hydrolysis obtaining good extraction yield values for all the analytes (>90.0\%). The enzymatic hydrolysis step was necessary for the determination of the total amount of soy isoflavones. The limit of quantitation was 0.5 ng mL(-1) for genistein and 0.25 ng mL(-1) for daidzein and glycitein. The method was found to be precise and accurate. Thus, the proposed method is suitable for the analysis of soy isoflavones (free and total amounts) in plasma of postmenopausal women under treatment with the SoymenGN dietary supplement.
