This paper reports the determination of trace levels of 5 types of fluorinated quinolone drugs, i.e., ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, enoxacin, pefloxacin, and ofloxacin, by thin-layer chromatography (TLC)/fluorescence densitometry. The new analytical method uses 2-step TLC development, selective separation, and simultaneous determination of the 5 drugs. The method was also applied to the determination of recoveries of standards of the 5 drugs in plasma and urine samples. The results show that the method has a wide linear range, high repeatability, and good stability.
