Homovanillic Acid (HVA) -- Urinary HVA is the end metabolite of catecholamines, dopamine and urinary vanillylmandelic acid (VMA).
To the editor: For 15 years, we have determined urinary vanillylmandelic acid (VMA) by a method  that relies on the reaction of extracted VMA with the diazo derivative of p-nitroaniline to give a pink chromophore; the chromophore undergoes a bathochromic shift in the presence of an aprotic solvent and a base to give a blue derivative with maximum absorbance at 600 nm.
