Analysis of PBDEs in Sediment Using GC-MS/MS

by Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc  (Nov. 19, 2012)

Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are brominated flame retardants (BFRs) widely used in plastics. Due to their toxicity and persistence, their industrial production is to be eliminated under the Stockholm Convention. Contamination from PBDEs is widespread in the environment, including in sediments. In order to determine PBDEs in sediments, ...

GC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticides in Drinking Water

by Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc  (Oct. 2, 2014)

According to Japan’s list of drinking water quality control substances, pesticides are included as supplemental items subject to analysis. Designed to complement the standards, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare encourages water utilities to monitor pesticide levels and achieve specified targets. Among the 102 listed pesticides, 84 ...

Analysis of Opioids Using Isotope Dilution with GCMS-TQ8030 GC/MS/MS

by Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc  (Jul. 2, 2014)

Development of methods for analysis of drugs of abuse has become a high priority for both forensic toxicology and law enforcement. The large numbers of individual drugs and new "designer drugs" has made method development for these compounds a significant undertaking. Gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GCMS) has been used extensively for ...

GC/MS-SIM-An option for lower detection limits

by Curtis & Tompkins Laboratories  (Jul. 16, 2013)

Select Ion Monitoring mode (GC/MS-SIM) is a technique used to perform low level GC/MS measurements of organic compounds. GC/MS-SIM can reduce reporting limits 10-100 fold and can minimize the effects of matrix interferences.                                   ...

GC-MS Analysis of Polychlorinated Dibenzodioxins and Polychlorinated Dibenzofurans

by Sigma-Aldrich Co., LLC  (Jun. 5, 2012)

Polychlorinated dibenzodioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) consist of 210 different compounds with varying degrees of toxicity, and the 17 congeners with chlorine substitution in the 2,3,7,8 positions are considered the most toxic. This chromatogram illustrates the separation of a 17 component 2,3,7,8-substituted PCDD and ...
