  • Tetracyclines are ubiquitous pollutants in the aquatic environment so it is necessary to determine their levels in river water and sediment. Many extraction techniques have been suggested in previous studies. However there is lack of comparisons among them. This work compared three extraction methods Ultrasonic Assisted Tandem Solid Phase Extraction (UA-TSPE), Ultrasonic Assisted Dispersive Solid Phase Extraction (UA-DSPE) and Ultrasonic Assisted Matrix Solid Phase Dispersion (UA-MSPD) in… CONTINUE READING
