After the establishment of the sample flow rate, the eluent flow rate was varied (0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 mL [min.sup.-1]) and, it was not observed significant differences in the percentage of analyte eluted when the eluent flow rate varied from 0.5 to 1.0 mL [min.sup.-1]; thus, 1.0 mL was selected, which results in recoveries percentage of 30% and 40%for AMPA and GLYP, respectively (Figure 2).
