An automated, simple and sensitive method based on selective pressurized liquid extraction (SPLE) was developed for the analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in sewage sludge samples. The new sample preparation procedure consists of on-line clean-up by inclusion of sorbents in the extraction cell, and combines elevated temperatures and pressures with(More)
For the first time, a procedure based on solid-phase extraction (SPE) for the simultaneous extraction of a group of parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl and benzyl p-hydroxybenzoates) and p-hydroxybenzoic acid (PHBA), from environmental water samples has been developed. Analysis of the extracts was performed by non-aqueous capillary electrophoresis (NACE)(More)
New methods based on nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis (NACE) were developed as promising alternatives for the simultaneous separation and determination of p-hydroxybenzoic acid (PHBA) and a group of parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl and benzyl p-hydroxybenzoates), with good resolution and excellent sensitivity. As an effective on-line(More)
The development and performance evaluation of a method for the simultaneous determination of six pharmaceuticals belonging to the class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which present high selectivity for the cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 isoform of COX (COXIBs) in environmental waters are presented. The method involves an off-line mixed mode(More)
