The Food and Drug Administration multi-component regulatory procedure for determining polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons in foods was recently used to survey 24 foodstuffs for the presence of these compounds. The procedure has a reliable limit of quantitation of 2 ppb. The potent carcinogen benzo(a)pyrene was detected in only one of the 24 products analyzed,(More)
A high pressure liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method has been developed for the determination of some polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in beer. The PAHs are extracted into isooctane from a beer sample to which sodium hydroxide, ethanol, and acetone have been added. The isooctane extract is washed with acid and then base, and is purified by(More)
A gas-liquid chromatographic (GLC)-mass spectral (MS) method for the determination and confirmation of urethane in wines has been developed. Analyses of domestic and imported wines indicated urethane to be present at levels ranging from 1 to 20 microng/L. Recoveries of urethane from wines fortified at 10 ppb (microng/L) ranged from 50 to 100% with an(More)
