Optimization of instrumental parameters for flow-injection analysis, thermospray tandem mass spectrometry R. Automatic Identification of Isotopically Labeled Pesticides and Metabolites by Intelligent 'Real Time' Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry Using a Bench-Top Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer Drexler, D. Dependence of accuracy in mass measurement on relative response ratio at different lock mass intensities. Jamin, Nicolas Creusot, Marina Grimaldi, Isabelle Jouanin, Sélim Aït-Aïssa, Patrick Balaguer, Laurent Debrauwer and Daniel Zalko, Characterization of endocrine disruptors from a complex matrix using estrogen receptor affinity columns and high performance liquid chromatography—high resolution mass spectrometry , Environmental Science and Pollution Research , 20 , 5 , 2705 , 2013. In this sense, applications are discussed on the characterization of the most relevant compounds of environmental interest such as pesticides, detergents, dyes, polar metabolites, waste streams, organotin compounds and marine toxins with comparison between different interfacing systems.
On-line post column liquid-solid and liquid-liquid extractions in environmental liquid chromatography-thermospray-mass spectrometry R. An accurate mass measurement increases the certainty of identification of an elemental formula and is used to reduce the number of candidate molecular formulae to be considered. Peñuela, Use of time-of-flight mass spectrometry for large screening of organic pollutants in surface waters and soils from a rice production area in Colombia , Science of The Total Environment , 10. Particle beam mass spectrometry for the analysis of aqueous and hazardous waste leachates J. Two basic strategies can be distinguished, depending on the aims of the analysis: 1 screening and confirmation of target analytes with optional quantification and 2 elucidation of unknown contaminants or photodegradation or microbial degradation products of selected contaminants. This can generate false positives, if the selected transitions are not specific, i.

For higher molecular weight compounds such mass accuracy can dramatically limit the number of likely candidates and allow identification if complementary information about the sample is available. The broad spectrum of the book and its application to environmental priority compounds makes it unique in many ways. Validation and quality assurance are described in the third section, together with the interpretation of environmental data using advanced chemometric techniques. Developments in interface technology for combined liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and supercritical fluid chromatography-mass spectrometry W.
Specific issues such as uncertainty of mass measurement and quantitative performances are discussed in detail. Optimization of instrumental parameters for flow-injection analysis, thermospray tandem mass spectrometry R. Water Analysis: Surfactants and Detergents MacCarthy, P. At a fixed concentration of the calibrant, an increase in the concentration of the analyte will result in a deviation from accurate mass shifted to a negative value. He is CoEditor in Chief of the journal Science of Total Environment and the book series Comprehensive Analytical Chemistry, both form Elsevier.
Is there enough structural information? In particular, the method allowed removing ambiguities coming from isobaric neutral losses. Figure shows the example of the veterinary fungicide enilconazole that was confirmed as an unknown compound found in a sample of surface water. Absolute number of ion counts Another factor that influences mass accuracy is the absolute number of ion counts. Electrospray Mass Spectrometry of Groundwater Organic Acids Letter, J. The technique is also successfully applied for the screening of target compounds. Impact of Drugs That Get Past Sewage Treatment Systems Everta, S.
Water Analysis: Pesticides, Herbicides and Fungicides MacCarthy, P. He published over 900 papers, 200 book chapters and has h index 91. The main field of application is the identification of unknowns and elucidation of structures proposed for transformation products, where the amount of information obtained allows secure identification of the identity of compounds. A single point calibration can be performed in two basic ways: 1 by introducing a reference compound providing a lock mass into the mass spectrometer either postcolumn or via dual sprayer or 2 by using the theoretical mass of an ion of known structure within the spectrum itself as a lock mass. The mass errors obtained for molecular ions were between 0.
. The main reason for this is the high cost of the instruments and a relatively unfavorable record on quantification performances lower sensitivity and lower linear dynamic range in comparison to QqQ instruments. Because I have installed Adobe Reader 8. When the ratio of the analyte and the calibrant is 1 : 1, the errors due to distorted peak shapes are canceled and the best mass accuracy is achieved. Another option is a dual electrospray ion source, developed by a few mass spectrometer manufacturers, in which both sprays are orthogonal to each other and the mechanism allows switching between reference and the sample sprayer.
On-line post column liquid-solid and liquid-liquid extractions in environmental liquid chromatography-thermospray-mass spectrometry R. The final section reports the use of somewhat advanced analytical methods, usually more expensive, less routinely used or less developed, for the determination of pollutants. Talanta In press, corrected proof, available online 24 July 2006. Each chapter includes sufficient references to the literature to serve as a valuable starting point and also contains detailed investigations. The topical collection in this issue of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry provides an indication of current trends in the analysis of emerging contaminants in environmental and food samples. Achieving an optimal number of ion counts in real samples is not always feasible and may require reanalysis after dilution.
