Towards Single System for Total Water Analysis. LC-MS/MS screening of 325 PPCP Contaminants in Tap and Surface Water.

Single system LC-MS/MS multi-method approach for the development of an easy access automated exhaustive water analysis tool. There is growing concern over the exposure of humans to their chemical waste, flushed down everyday in the conventional wastewater network: pesticides, household chemicals, pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCP). Many countries worldwide are regularly monitoring and assessing over a hundred PPCP from wastewater. Specific and highly sensitive detection is required. LC-MS/MS is widely used, however it can hardly be exhaustive due to the wide variability of target chemical properties. Each method is developed as a compromise for a restricted list of compounds only. Here we propose to develop a single automated system, switching between several methods, for total water analysis.
