Enantioselective biodistribution studies of 1‐[4‐(2‐methoxyethyl)phenoxy]‐3‐[2‐(2‐methoxyphenoxy)ethylamino]‐2‐propanol hydrochloride (TJ0711), a novel antihypertensive agent, require the accurate and precise quantification of each TJ0711 enantiomer in biological fluids and tissues. Here we report a simple and sensitive liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry method for simultaneous determination of (R)‐TJ0711 and (S)‐TJ0711 in rat plasma and tissue samples using protein precipitation. The influence of column type, temperature, mobile phase composition, and flow rate on the retention and enantioselectivity was evaluated. The separation of the TJ0711 enantiomers was ultimately achieved on a SUMICHIRAL OA‐2500 column in 15 min using isocratic elution with ethanol/hexane (40:60) at a flow rate of 0.8 mL/min. Good linearities of spiked analyte concentration from 5 to 2000 ng/mL were achieved and the correlation coefficients (R) were greater than 0.99. The intra‐ and inter‐day accuracy and precision for both analytes were <15% at all concentration levels, and the extraction recoveries were consistent among the five quality control concentrations. This assay was successfully applied to quantify plasma and tissue concentrations of TJ0711 enantiomers in a preclinical study.
