Due to the different physico-chemical properties of phenols, the development of a methodology for the simultaneous extraction and determination of phenolic compounds belonging to several families, such as chlorophenols (CPs), alkylphenols (APs), nitrophenols (NTPs) and cresols is difficult. This study shows the development and validation of a method for the(More)
A comprehensive survey of the occurrence and fate of pesticides and organic contaminants in soils from an intensive agricultural area devoted to horticultural production in plastic-based greenhouses has been performed to determine if the operation under integrated pest management practices has contributed to reduce the levels of these compounds.

The assessment of the recovery factor with the analyte concentration in meat samples has been studied for the determination of organochlorine and organophosphorus pesticides in meat by gas chromatography-triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS). For that purpose, recent IUPAC recommendations, which distinguishes between two terms, recovery factor and(More)
A wide range of pesticides used to control pests in vegetables have been determined in agricultural plant waste from beans, watermelons, and melons grown in greenhouses located in a predominantly agricultural area in Southeast Spain (Almería). Analysis of the pesticides was carried out by low-pressure gas chromatography (LP-GC) with mass spectrometry in(More)
A database has been created for the simultaneous analysis of more than 350 pesticides and veterinary drugs (including antibiotics) using ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled to high resolution Orbitrap mass spectrometry (UHPLC-Orbitrap-MS). This is a comprehensive exact mass database built using the Exactive-Orbitrap analyzer. The developed(More)
A new analytical procedure using a hollow fiber supported liquid membrane (HFSLM) has been developed for the simultaneous determination of pesticide residues in vegetables by liquid chromatography (LC) coupled with electrospray mass spectrometry (MS). The extraction technique requires minimal sample preparation and solvent consumption. Optimum extraction(More)
An alternative to conventional capillary gas chromatography (GC) is evaluated as a new approach to determine pesticide residues in vegetables. Low-pressure gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LP-GC-MS-MS) is proposed after a fast and simple extraction of the vegetable samples with dichloromethane and without clean up. The use of the above-mentioned(More)
A method was optimised and validated for simultaneous monitoring of several drugs of different classes of antibiotics such as quinolones (oxilinic acid and flumequine), tetracyclines (oxytetracycline), sulfonamides (sulfadiazine) and trimethoprim in fish muscle and skin. The method is based on solid-liquid extraction without further sample clean up followed(More)
An analytical methodology has been developed for the simultaneous extraction of 13 phenolic compounds, including chlorophenols (CPs), nitrophenols (NTPs), cresols and alkylphenols (APs) in different types of wastewater (WW) effluents. A solid-phase extraction (SPE) method has been optimized prior to the determination by gas chromatography coupled to triple(More)
The determination of compounds showing a very low molecular weight (i.e. < 200 Da) can be complicated when low-resolution mass spectrometry is used in the selected-reaction monitoring mode, since the possible number of product ions is reduced and the obtained reactions are not selective enough to overcome background noise and/or matrix interferences.
