A Novel Screening Method for Anthropogenic Sewage Pollutants in Waste Water, Ground Water and Drinking Water Samples by LC-HRAM Analysis
DescriptionThere is a growing public concern about potential contamination of water and the environment with anthropogenic compounds and their degradation products and possible negative impacts on nature and public health. We describe a method that uses the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive mass spectrometer with an Accela Open Autosampler to fully automate the analysis of waste water and drinking water for anthropogenic compounds down to low ppt concentration levels without time consuming solid phase extraction.
