Based on federal and state regulations for identifying and quantifying low levels of pesticides in food and environmental samples, we selected three capillary columns to screen for triazine pesticides. A nonpolar and two low/intermediate polar phases were chosen to evaluate differences in component elution order and retention times. Low level screening analyses were performed effectively by using split/splitless injection and a thermal specific detector (TSD). Each column separated the triazines in less than 30 minutes. Example chromatograms are shown.
