There is revived interest in the development and implementation of methods of faster GC. The paper summarises the advantages of faster GC analysis, general approaches to faster GC method development and practical aspects of fast gas chromatography with the utilisation of open tubular capillary columns with the stress on trace analysis. There are a number of(More)
In order to achieve better resolution and lower detection limits for s-triazines, glass capillary columns made of soft soda-lime glass and etched with gaseous hydrogen chloride have been introduced. Columns with non-polar (OV-101, SE-30) mixed (Carbowax 20M + SE-30) and polar stationary liquids (Carbowax 20M) were used. The thickness of the ultra-thin film(More)
Fast GC-MS with narrow-bore columns combined with effective sample preparation technique (QuEChERS method) was used for evaluation of various calibration approaches in pesticide residues analysis. In order to compare the performance of analyte protectants (APs) with matrix-matched standards calibration curves of selected pesticides were searched in terms of(More)
Enveloped and unenveloped forms of herpes simplex virus (HSV) occurring in infected rabbit lung (ZP line) cells were purified by differential and discontinuous Ficoll density gradient centrifugation. Then the viral particles were separated in a sucrose-D2O density gradient. In the course of the procedures, both virus preparations were freed of(More)
Residues of ethylenethiourea (ETU) in grapes and wine were determined by capillary gas chromatography and paper chromatography, without a cleanup step, and after derivatization to S-benzyl-ETU. The detection limit was 0.0002 mg/kg for flame ionization detection, 0.008 mg/kg for paper chromatography with photodensitometric evaluation of the detected spot.(More)
Pesticides are widely utilized at various stages of cultivation and during postharvest storage to protect plants against a range of pests and/or to provide quality preservation. Reliable confirmatory methods are required to monitor pesticide residues in baby foods and to ensure the safety of baby food supply. This review covers methods in which pesticide(More)
Solid-phase extraction with a novel porous carbon sorbent CARB GR was used for the clean-up step of dicarboxyimide fungicides residues from variety of Slovak grape wines with subsequent capillary gas chromatography-flame ionization detection, -electron-capture detection (ECD) and -mass spectrometry-ion-trap detection (MS-ITD) analysis. Recovery was tested(More)
The importance of method development in the area of pesticide residues analysis is apparent from legislative requirements continuously decreasing the maximum acceptable concentration levels in food and water. This covers also contribution in the science in the field of ultra-trace analysis of organic pollutants in complex mixtures. Analysis time is one of(More)
Endocrine disrupting chemicals, among them many pesticides, alter the normal functioning of the endocrine system of both wildlife and humans at very low concentration levels. Therefore, the importance of method development for their analysis in food and the environment is increasing. This also covers contributions in the field of ultra-trace analysis of(More)
The study of pesticide residues belonging to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) (23 analytes of different chemical classes--organochlorines, organophosphates, pyrethroids, dicarboximides, phtalamides, dinitroanilines, pyrazole, triazinone) in apple matrix with conventional capillary GC-NCI-MS (with methane as reagent gas) in comparison to EI ionization(More)
