  Abstract  
  Simultaneous determination of ascorbic acid (AA), dehydroascorbic acid (DHA), 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF) and furfural (F) in hot pepper was mainly developed. The extract of the pepper sample was obtained with 3%(v/v) acetic acid and was subjected to separate on reversed-phase HPLC-PDA with their monitoring wavelengths at 225 nm for DHA, 245 nm for AA and 280 nm for 5-HMF and F. The calibration curves were found linearly in the range of 0.1-100 µg/mL for AA, 5-HMF and F, and 0.1-10 µg/mL for DHA. The multiple determination coefficients obtained were higher than 0.999. Detection limits of AA, DHA, 5-HMF and F were 0.02, 0.05, 0.006 and 0.01 µg/mL, respectively. Quantitation limits of AA, DHA, 5-HMF and F were 0.07, 0.20, 0.02 and 0.04 µg/mL, respectively. The method recoveries of AA, DHA, 5-HMF and F by standard addition method were found to be 89.4, 89.3, 89.1 and 96.6% in average, respectively. The DHA contents in the sample were also investigated using this method in comparison with the determination of DHA as the difference in total AA after DHA reduction with dithiothreitol. The contents of AA and DHA in hot pepper sample were ranged from 1.3-99 and 0.13-2.8 mg/100 g, respectively. 5-HMF was not detectable while F was rarely found in these samples used. The contents of AA, DHA, 5-HMF and F in both wine and fruit juice samples were ranged from 0.38-47, 0.91-7.4, 0.20-12 and 0.010-0.70 mg/100 mL, respectively.
