A method for the determination of trace volatile sulphur compounds (VSCs) including methanethiol, dimethyl sulfide (DMS) and dimethyl disulfide (DMDS) at low ppbv (volume/volume) in breath has been developed using a large volume preconcentration technique prior to capillary GC-MS analysis. The breath sample was collected in a 6-1 fused-silica-lined(More)
A simple, fast and sensitive liquid chromatography/atmospheric pressure photoionization mass spectrometry (LC/APPI-MS) method, with automated on-line extraction using turbulent flow chromatography (TFC), was developed for the determination of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in river water. In this method, following an on-line extraction by injection onto a(More)
This paper describes a comparison between atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) and the recently introduced atmospheric pressure photoionization (APPI) technique for the liquid chromatography/mass spectrometric (LC/MS) determination of patulin in clear apple juice. A column switching technique for on-line extraction of clear apple juice was(More)
A liquid chromatography-atmospheric pressure photoionization (APPI) mass spectrometry method was developed for the determination of chloramphenicol (CAP) in fish meats (young yellowtail and flatfish). For the optimization of APPI, several APPI ion source parameters and mobile phases were investigated. CAP with APPI using the optimized parameters gave simple(More)
A method for the determination of seven alkylphenols and bisphenol A by stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) with in situ derivatization-thermal desorption (TD)-gas chromatography (GC)-mass spectrometry (MS) is described. SBSE was performed with in situ acetylation and without derivatization for comparison. For 4-tert-butylphenol and bisphenol A, in situ(More)
A method for the determination of estrogens (17alpha-estradiol, 17beta-estradiol, estrone, ethynyl estradiol, and estriol) as pentafluorobenzyl-trimethylsilyl (PFB-TMS) derivatives by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) with negative-ion chemical-ionization (NICI) is described. The NICI of all the derivatives produced an intense [M-PFB]- ion as the(More)
Fused-silica-lined (FSL) canisters and SUMMA polished (SUMMA) canisters were compared for the recoveries and the stabilities of 58 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at low ppbv (volume/volume) levels under various humidified conditions using a three-stage preconcentration method followed by GC-MS analysis. The target VOCs included non-polar VOCs (e.g.(More)
Liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS) using silver nitrate as a post-column reagent has been used for the determination of 10 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in river water. In this method, after all the PAHs were separated by reversed-phase liquid chromatography, analytes formed complexes with silver cation by(More)
A simple, fast and sensitive liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method with automated on-line extraction using turbulent flow chromatography (TFC) for the determination of five catechins in human plasma was developed. In this method, after on-line extraction by its injection onto an extractor column at turbulent flow, five catechins were(More)
A method for the determination of stale-flavor carbonyl compounds including E-2-octenal, E-2-nonenal, E,Z-2,6-nonadienal and E,E-2,4-decadienal in beer was developed using stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) with in-situ derivatization followed by thermal desorption-GC-MS analysis. The derivatization conditions with(More)
