    Reproducible Recoveries of Pesticides from Fruits and Vegetables

    LC-MS/MS methods are become very popular for the analysis of pesticides in fruits and vegetables. This is due to their ability to resolve many analytes of varying functionality. However, care must be taken during sample preparation to minimize unwanted matrix components (pigments, sugars, organic acids, fatty acids, etc.) from ending up in the final extract. The presence of these non-target ...

    Radiello® Manual (PDF 1766 KB)

    In pumped sampling the adsorbed compound behaves as a chromatographic peak (top): air flow displaces it along the adsorbent bed and its concentration is distributed as a gaussian function. Eventually, the compound comes out from the opposite end. When its concentration in the outlet air is 10% of the concentration in the sampled air we say that the breakthrough has been reached or, with a ...

    The Analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds by Purge and Trap on the SPB™-624 Column

    The SPB-624 column is an excellent choice for the separation of a wide range of volatile organic contaminants typically monitored for in air, soil and water. Often, this type of work is accomplished through purge and trap – GC/MS analysis. For GC/MS systems equipped with a jet separator, we recommend the 75m x 0.53mm ID, 3.0µm dimension. A 0.53mm ID column will accommodate faster flow ...

    Formaldehyde and Acetaldehyde Determination in Air Using Fully Automated On-Line Desorption and Analysis of DNPH Cartridges

    Airborne aldehydes and ketones are collected by passing air through a cartridge containing 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH). Carbonyl compounds react with the DNPH to form hydrazones, which are immobilized on the cartridge. These compounds can be easily eluted from the cartridge with acetonitrile and analyzed by HPLC with UV detection. Traditionally, this analysis including the workup contains a ...
