Red wine is a challenging matrix that contains organic acids, sugars, phenols and pigments such as anthocyanins. This application note describes a simple, fast, novel and effective method to clean up red wine co-extractives.
a) Add 10 mL red wine to 50 mL tube (RFV0050CT)
b) Add 10 mL acetonitrile, vortex 30 s
c) Add salts from Mylar pouch (ECQUUS2-MP)
d) Shake vigorously for 1 min
e) Centrifuge at 5000 rpm for 5 min
f) Supernatant is ready for cleanup
a) Load 1 mL supernatant with disposable syringe
b) Push the supernatant slowly through the cartridge (ECPURMPSMC)
c) Collect 0.5 mL extract into 2 mL autosampler vial
d) Add triphenyl phosphate as internal standard
