The fruit quality parameters and antioxidant capacity (ferric reducing antioxidant power, FRAP) and total phenolic content (TPC) were determined in 27 apricot cultivars and hybrids of diverse origins. Twenty one- to 35-fold variations were measured among FRAP and TPC values. Besides genotype, harvest year also contributed significantly (P≤0.05) to the(More)
Two apricot genotypes, 'Gonci magyarkajszi' and 'Preventa' were assayed at three ripening stages for flesh color indices (L*, a*, b*, C* and Hº), contents of total phenolics and vitamin C, and both water- and lipid-soluble antioxidant capacities (ferric reducing antioxidant power; 2,2'-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl scavenging activity; total radical scavenging(More)
In this work, a systematic comprehensive screening procedure has been proposed for the detection of multiclass flavonoid derivatives by liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS). The procedure is based on the combined use of accurate mass measurements and in-source fragmentation obtained with a liquid chromatography time-of-flight(More)
In-source collision-induced dissociation (CID) fragmentation features of multiclass flavonoid glycoconjugates were examined using liquid chromatography electrospray time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Systematic experiments were performed to search for optimal conditions for in-source fragmentation in both positive and negative ion modes. The objective of the(More)
This paper describes an efficient and effective analytical scheme to first screen for 300 pesticides in fruit and vegetables samples using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) with a commercially enhanced product ion method. Then presumed positive extracts are analysed using a quantitative and confirmatory LC-MS/MS method optimized for(More)
The optimization and application of gas chromatograph coupled with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (GC-ICPMS) (equipped with a commercially available interface) for the speciation of butyltin compounds in freshwater origin sediment and mussel samples is described. Optimization focused on the system parameters that have the greatest effect on(More)
In fields such as food and nutrition science or plant physiology, interest in untargeted profiling of flavonoids continues to expand. The group of flavonoids encompasses several thousands of chemically distinguishable compounds, among which are a number of isobaric compounds with the same elemental composition. Thus, the mass spectrometric identification of(More)
Dietary fiber-derived short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) and phenolics produced by the gut microbiome have multiple effects on health. We have tested the hypothesis that long-term exposure to physiological concentrations of SCFA can affect the transport and metabolism of (poly)phenols by the intestinal epithelium using the Caco-2 cell model. Metabolites and(More)
A method for the accurate determination of total Cr in seawater by isotope dilution (ID) sector field inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (SF-ICPMS) using GC as a means of sample introduction is described. Chromium was reduced to Cr(III) by addition of SO(2)-saturated water and derivatized with trifluoroacetylacetonate (TFA) to form volatile(More)
In recent years, the detection and characterization of relevant pesticide metabolites in food is an important task in order to evaluate their formation, kinetics, stability, and toxicity. In this article, a methodology for the systematic screening of pesticides and their main metabolites in fruit and vegetable samples is described, using LC-HRMS and(More)
