Rapid analytical methods for quantitative analysis and screening of 66 and 225 residual pesticide compounds, respectively, in pine needles and spices using GCMS triple quadrupole

Pesticides are indispensable in the protection of agricultural crops and products from pest infestation However, over recent years there has been an increase concern on residual pesticides found in food. Pesticides are ubiquitous through the environment and even low-level concentration can cause alarm due to these compounds acute and chronic toxicity. To that end, it is pivotal that novel instrumentation be able to measure these compounds down to trace concentration, even at the low fg/ul range. The objective of this study is to use GCMS triple quadrupole to conduct quantitative and qualitative analysis of a cocktail of pesticides in sample matrices consisting of a mixture of pine needles and various spices. The study consisted of two sample analyses: 1) a scan analysis to determine over 200 pesticides, and 2) EI quantitation of targeted pesticides.
