If you have access to an HPLC then ion exchange HPLC would be your best
bet. If not you can separate AMP,ADP, and ATP on a DEAE-Sephadex Column.
Equilibrate in 0.1M  Triethylammonium Bicarbonate pH7.0. Elute with a
linear gradient of 0.1M to 0.7M Triethylammonium Bicarbonate. Moniter
absorbance at 260nm. Triethylammonium Bicarbonate is pH'd by bubbling CO2
into a solution of triethylamine. Hope this helps.
