A rapid analytical method has been developed for the determination of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in human hair. PBDEs were determined by gas chromatography with electron ionization mass spectrometric detection in the selected ion monitoring mode (GC-MS-SIM). A 200mg amount of hair samples was overnight digested in 3N HCl and then PBDEs extracted(More)
In this study, a method for the determination of triclosan (TCS) and methyl triclosan (MTCS) in soil and sewage sludge samples from municipal wastewater treatment plants was developed based on the extraction by matrix solid-phase dispersion. After extraction, the analytes were derivatized with N-(tert-butyldimethylsilyl)-N-methyl-trifluoroacetamide for(More)
A rapid method, based on sonication-assisted extraction in small columns (SAESC) and subsequent quantification and identification by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), was developed for the determination of cyclic and linear siloxanes in soil. In the experiments with spiked samples (10-50 ng g(-1)), the recovery of cyclic and linear siloxanes(More)
A rapid method based on matrix solid-phase dispersion was developed for the determination of endosulfan isomers and endosulfan sulfate in commercial tomato juice. After the optimisation of different parameters such as the type of adsorbent, the extraction solvent, and the extraction assistance by sonication, the recoveries obtained ranged from 81 to 100%(More)
A method has been developed for the analysis of a wide polarity range of the currently used organophosphorus pesticides (OPs) and their metabolites in sewage sludge samples. Extraction was carried out using ultrasonic assisted extraction (UAE) with different solvents. The levels of OPs in sludge were determined by liquid chromatography-tandem mass(More)
Sorption and degradation rates of hexazinone and simazine on soil were determined in a sandy loam soil incubated, during 44 days, at 25 degrees C with moisture contents ranging from 4% to 18%. Herbicide levels in soil solution were also measured, after extraction of this solution by a centrifugation method. All experiments were conducted with treated soil(More)
A rapid multiresidue method was developed for the determination of nine organophosphorus pesticides in fruit juices. The analytical procedure is based on the matrix solid-phase dispersion (MSPD) of juice samples on Florisil in small glass columns and subsequent extraction with ethyl acetate assisted by sonication. Residue levels were determined by gas(More)
Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEO(x)) are surfactants which are used worldwide and can be transformed in the environment by microorganisms to form nonylphenol (NP). Analysis of these compounds was carried out with micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography (MEKC). Different parameters such as background electrolyte (BGE) solution, pH, type of surfactant,(More)
A multiresidue method was developed for the determination of 12 organophosphorus insecticides (diazinon, parathion methyl, fenitrothion, pirimiphosmethyl, malathion, fenthion, chlorpyrifos, quinalphos, methidathion, ethion, azinphosmethyl, coumaphos), one carbamate (pirimicarb), and one amidine (amitraz) in unifloral and multifloral honeys. The analytical(More)
In this work, an isotope dilution method for the determination, in agricultural and industrial soil samples, of tetrabromobisphenol-A, tetrachlorobisphenol-A and bisphenol-A by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry was developed. The compounds were extracted from soil by sonication assisted extraction in small columns (SAESC) with a low volume of ethyl(More)
