The aim of this study was to evaluate the seasonal variation/geographical distribution of environmental concentration of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) across Poland using butter fat as an indicator of the contaminants. The average concentration of six indicator PCBs determined in the studied samples was 1500 pg(More)
The studies on the analytical procedure for mercury determination in food of plant origin on the level of 5 micrograms/kg, were carried out. For this reason, microwave digestion with HNO3 and cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (CVAAS) with tin (II) chloride reduction, were used. Both digestion and determination conditions were experimentally(More)
The aim of this study was to develop an analytical method for qualitative and quantitative determination of the B(1), B(2,) and B(3) fumonisins in cereal products. A LC coupled to an IT-MS was used as the analytical instrument. The AFFINIMIP FumoZON Molecularly Imprinted Polymer SPE cartridges (Polyintell) were used to isolate fumonisins from the analyzed(More)
Several certified reference materials were used for quality control of mercury and selenium determination in food through different analytical procedures and techniques. The materials were selected with respect to different composition of matrix and levels of certified values. The results agreed well with the certified values for all analysed materials.
Total mercury concentrations were determined in 573 samples of agricultural crops and foods of plant origin which included cereals, fruit and vegetables and their products commercially available on the Polish market. The method of cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (CVAAS) after a wet-acid digestion in a closed-vessels and microwave oven was used(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), and organochlorine pesticides (DDT, HCH, HCB, chlordane, endrin, dieldrin, aldrin, nitrophene, metoxychlor) are man-made chemicals manufactured for numerous applications. The aim of this study was to assess levels of PCBs, PBDEs, and organochlorine pesticides in selected types of(More)
Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/furans (PCDD/Fs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are important environmental contaminants. Their maximum legally allowable levels in food and environment are in the low pg g(-1) range. Therefore some highly selective and sensitive analytical methods must be used to determine(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are hazardous food contaminants, their maximum legally allowable levels in food and environment are in the low pgg(-1) range. Therefore some highly selective and sensitive analytical methods must be used to determine them. The 96/23/EC Directive implemented by EC Decision of 12(More)
Various statistical methods have been employed to analyse in details seasonal diversification of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)/polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) congener profiles found in butter fat. The variability of the PCB/PBDE congener profiles indicates the presence of various sources of the milk fat contamination. The obtained results suggest(More)
A liquid chromatography/ion trap mass spectrometry-based method to determine six ergot alkaloids and their isomers is presented. The samples were cleaned on neutral alumina-based solid-phase extraction cartridges. The following method parameters were obtained (depending on the analyte and spiking level): method recovery from 63.0 to 104.6%, relative(More)
