The analytical hyphenation of micro-flow high-performance liquid chromatography (LC), with post-column liquid mixing and mass spectrometric detection (MS) was established to detect partially oxidized polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (oxy-PAHs) for low quantity samples. 100pmol injections of 30 reference standards could be detected in good sensitivity using(More)
A large number of anthropogenic trace contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, their human metabolites and further transformation products (TPs) enter wastewater treatment plants on a daily basis. A mixture of known, expected, and unknown molecules are discharged into the receiving aquatic environment because only partial elimination occurs for many of these(More)
Mass spectral libraries represent versatile tools for the identification of small bioorganic molecules. Libraries based on electron impact spectra are rated robust and transferable. Tandem mass spectral libraries are often considered to work properly only on the instrument that has been used to build the library. An exception from that rule is the 'Wiley(More)
In this article, a dataset from a collaborative non-target screening trial organised by the NORMAN Association is used to review the state-of-the-art and discuss future perspectives of non-target screening using high-resolution mass spectrometry in water analysis. A total of 18 institutes from 12 European countries analysed an extract of the same water(More)
In the present study, an easy and efficient method based on the serial coupling of analytical reversed-phase and zwitterionic hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography was developed for the simultaneous separation of polar and nonpolar phenols occurring in wine. The zwitterionic hydrophilic column was connected in series to the reversed-phase one via a(More)
The retention behavior of fifteen isomeric hydroxy- and aminobenzoic acids in zwitterionic hydrophilic interaction chromatography was studied using a sulfobetaine phase (ZIC-HILIC). By an inspection of their molecular structures, the retention was related to the number, the position and hydrogen bond properties of the functional groups. The effect of the(More)
We have recently proved that the serial coupling of RP and zwitterionic hydrophilic interaction LC with mass spectrometric detection is a versatile and reliable technique to simultaneously separate polar and apolar compounds in complex samples, for example, phenols in wine. In order to evaluate the system suitability for long-term usage, the robustness of a(More)
The electrophoretic mobilities of three beta-blocker drugs, practolol, timolol and propranolol, have been measured in electrolyte systems with mixed binary and ternary water-methanol-ethanol solvents with acetic acid/sodium acetate as buffer using capillary electrophoresis. The highest mobilities for the analytes studied have been observed in pure aqueous,(More)
Trace organic compounds are important in environmental analysis because they impact water quality and introduce potential (eco)toxicological effects. Current analytical methods mostly rely on gas chromatography (GC) or reversed-phase liquid chromatography (RPLC) coupled with (tandem) mass spectrometry. However, neither method can easily separate very polar(More)
