Previous published methods for the analysis of ETU and PTU are time-consuming and furthermore use dichloromethane (DCM) for extraction or clean-up. This study details the development and validation of a rapid method that combines a simple extraction step with UHPLC-ESI(+)-MS/MS. This is the first application of UHPLC-MS/MS to analyse these compounds. Besides that, we replaced DCM with a more environmental-friendly solvent. The analytical performance was evaluated with the analysis of spiked… CONTINUE READING
