Gaseous formaldehyde is sampled by derivatization with o-(2,3,4,5,6-pentafluorobenzyl)hydroxylamine hydrochloride (PFBHA) adsorbed onto poly (dimethylsiloxane)/divinylbenzene solid-phase microextraction fibers. The product of the reaction is an oxime which is thermally very stable and insensitive to light. The oxime can be analyzed by gas chromatography(More)
A method of analysis of eight flavones using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-diode array detection (DAD)-mass spectrometry (MS) in root and aerial tissues of the medicinal plant Scutellaria baicalensis was developed. The identity of the analytes was confirmed using retention time, UV-vis and mass spectral comparisons to commercial standards.(More)
Various approaches to the analysis of polar compounds in different matrixes by solid-phase microextraction (SPME) were studied. The analysis of polar analytes in nonpolar matrixes was performed with custom-made SPME fibers coated with Nafion perfluorinated resin. The sensitivity of this fiber in this type of analysis was better by 1 order of magnitude on(More)
The paper describes a method to quantify hydrocarbons in air exclusively on the basis of chromatographic parameters without the need for calibration. A simple technique is presented to estimate distribution coefficients (K) between air and the poly(dimethylsiloxane) solid phase microextraction (SPME) fiber coating using the linear temperature-programmed(More)
A quantitative answer cannot exist in analysis without a qualitative component to give enough confidence that the result meets the analytical needs (i.e. the result relates to the analyte and not something else). Just as a quantitative method must typically undergo an empirical validation process to demonstrate that it is fit for purpose, qualitative(More)
An increased risk of breast cancer has been observed in women who consume "very well-done" meats. Heterocyclic amines are mutagenic and carcinogenic pyrolysis products formed during high temperature cooking of meats. In the present study, human milk samples were analyzed for PhIP, one of the most abundant dietary heterocyclic amine. A protocol was developed(More)
The solid-phase microextraction (SPME) device is used as a time-weighted average (TWA) sampler for gas-phase analytes by retracting the coated fiber a known distance into its needle housing during the sampling period. Unlike in conventional spot sampling with SPME, the TWA sampling approach does not allow the analytes to reach equilibrium with the fiber(More)
Standard gases are used for quality control and quality assurance, development of analysis methods and novel air sampling devices. The use of solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and other novel technologies for research in the area of air sampling and analysis requires systems/devices for reliable standard gas generation and sampling. In this paper we(More)
A multiresidue, multiclass semiquantitative screening analysis of 39 drug residues covering 8 drug classes, including aminoglycosides in veal muscle, based on a single multiresidue extraction routine and using high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS), is presented. Sample preparation(More)
A novel and simple method using solid phase microextraction (SPME) with poly(dimethylsiloxane) fiber coating and linear temperature-programmed retention index (LTPRI) has been developed to quantify petroleum hydrocarbons in water. Partition coefficients (K(fw)) for the analytes in water and SPME were established for a series of aromatics, cycloalkanes and(More)
