Arachidonic acid is transformed in vivo to a wide variety of oxygenated metabolites. The limiting factor in the quantitation of these metabolites by GC/MS using selected ion monitoring (SIM) is the availability of suitable stable-isotope labelled internal standards. We report a convenient procedure for the preparation of 2H8-arachidonic acid, from which the desired deuterated metabolite standards can be produced by a combination of chemical and biological procedures.
