The influence of various factors on the extraction yields of incurred pesticides from crops using the QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, and Safe) method was thoroughly studied. These factors included extraction time, extraction temperature, agitation approach, and in the case of dry commodities, sample comminution grade. Extraction yields(More)
The complete extraction of analytes is of utmost importance when analyzing matrix samples for mycotoxins. Mycotoxins consist of substances with widely different physicochemical properties; therefore, the loss of toxins that occurs in multi-mycotoxin methods due to compromises in the extraction solvent is currently a topic under discussion. With regard to(More)
The validation of an analytical procedure for the determination of pesticide residues in beeswax, an interesting matrix for environmental pollution monitoring, is presented. Using the QuEChERS template, the impacts of wax particle size, sample amount, and cleanup procedure (water addition, dispersive solid phase extraction, freeze-out, and combinations(More)
We developed a method for the hydrolysis of amitraz, and its degradation products 2,4-dimethylphenyl-N'-methylformamidine (DMPF) and 2,4-dimethylformamide (DMF) into 2,4-dimethylaniline (DMA), directly from QuEChERS extracts. The hydrolysis product DMA was analysed using liquid chromatography-electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS) in the(More)
