The identification of degradation products generated upon photolysis of estrone (E1), a natural estrogenic hormone, under simulated UV irradiation conditions was addressed by the use of LC-Q-TOF mass spectrometry. The structures of the main degradation products were elucidated, demonstrating how the use of model molecules 5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-2-naphtol (THN),(More)
The degradation of the chloracetamide herbicide acetochlor has been studied under simulated ozonation treatment plant conditions. The degradation of acetochlor included the formation of several degradation products that were identified using GC/ion-trap mass spectrometry with EI and CI and HPLC/electrospray-QqTOF mass spectrometry. Thirteen ozonation(More)
This article describes the strange behavior of the widely used herbicide metolachlor under chemical ionization conditions in a hybrid source ion trap mass spectrometer in gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) coupling. With the use of ammonia as the reagent gas, metolachlor provides a chlorinated ion at m/z 295/297, almost as abundant as the(More)
This paper focuses on the identification of several chemical markers of vegetal species of Oriental lacquers with the aim at providing a methodology consistent with sampling restrictions necessarily applied in the field of cultural heritage. The method proposed is based on rapid and easy single step thermally assisted hydrolysis-methylation (THM)(More)
Aqueous solutions of metolachlor and metolachlor-d(6) were photolyzed with UV-visible radiations. The structures of 15 by-products of metolachlor were determined through gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analyses using electron and chemical ionization combined with multistage mass spectrometry. The photolysis by-products of metolachlor resulted mainly(More)
RATIONALE Fenbuconazole is a fungicide commonly used for the protection of vineyards, vegetables and grain crops. Under UV-visible irradiation, it undergoes isomerization through various cyclization processes. Isomeric structures were elucidated by liquid chromatography/high-resolution multiple-stage mass spectrometry (LC/HR-MS(n) ) coupling. The potential(More)
Ultraviolet (UV)-visible irradiation of fludioxonil was investigated with two photoreactors using either a mercury or xenon vapor lamp. In both cases, it led to the formation of only one photoproduct in significant amount: 2-(2,2-difluorobenzo[d][1,3]dioxol-4-yl)-2-(nitrosomethylene)-4-oxobutanenitrile, which has been characterized using Liquid(More)
RATIONALE Cyprodinil is a fungicide active on grapes, strawberries, tomatoes, and many other fruits. Under UV-visible irradiation, it undergoes photodegradation through various processes to form transformation products (TPs) whose structures and potential toxicities are unknown. The structures of the TPs were elucidated by comparing the photodegradation of(More)
This article establishes an alternative method for the characterization of volatiles organic matter (VOM) contained in deposits of the piston first ring grooves of diesel engines using a ChromatoProbe direct sample introduction (DSI) device coupled to gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) analysis. The addition of an organic solvent during thermal(More)
RATIONALE Metolachlor is one of the most intensively used chloroacetanilide herbicides in agriculture. It has been detected in water; consequently, under UV-visible irradiation, it can be transformed in degradation products (TPs). The structures of TPs were elucidated by liquid chromatography/high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry (LC/HR-MS/MS). The(More)
