Determination of Sulfonamide Antibiotics in Wastewater by Liquid Chromatography– Tandem Mass Spectrometry
DescriptionSulfonamides are a common class of synthetic antimicrobials that are widely used in human and in veterinary medicine and as feed additives to promote growth in concentrated animal feeding operations. They are regarded as emerging contaminants that are introduced into the environment predominantly in the USA and Europe. We describe a method for the determination of sulfonamide antibiotics at trace levels in effluent wastewaters.
