Laboratories are constantly challenged to analyze more classes of pesticides at lower concentrations in more different commodities, with faster turnaround times and little, if any, increase in costs.
One of the most challenging group of pesticides is the polar anionic pesticides, such as glyphosate, glufosinate, fosetyl, chlorate and the like, which often occur as residues in food, but are not always included in pesticide monitoring programs. This presentation focuses on the extensive optimization and performance of a new validated ion-chromatography triple quadrupole mass spectrometry based workflow for the robust, sensitive and reliable determination of a group of polar anionic pesticides and metabolites at low µg/kg levels, without the need for derivatization, and all in a single analysis.
