Abstract: A liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) method was developed and validated for the determination of five total tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines (TSNA), including free and conjugated forms in urine. The limits of detection for 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanol, N'-nitrosonornicotine, 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone, N'-nitrosoanatabine and N'-nitrosoanabasine were 0.6, 0.6, 10.0, 0.4 and 0.4 pg/mL, respectively, with a linear calibration range of up to 20,000 pg/mL. Intra- and inter-day precision for TSNA measurements ranged from 0.82 to 3.67% and from 2.04 to 7.73% respectively. For total TSNAs, the β-glucuronidase amount was optimized for hydrolysis time and yield. Different liquid chromatography columns and mobile phases with different pH conditions were evaluated. The validated method was then applied to 50 smoker and 30 nonsmoker urine samples. Our results suggest that this sensitive and relatively simple analytical method is suitable for application to epidemiological investigations of health risks associated with the exposure to tobacco smoke or secondhand smoke in both smokers and nonsmokers.
