AN352: Rapid Determination of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Using Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE)

Instrument Type: Automated Sample Prep

The following compounds are listed by UNEP to be POPS: • Pesticides: Aldrin, Chlordane, DDT, Dieldrin, Endrin, Heptachlor, Mirex, and Toxaphene • Industrial chemicals: Hexachlorobenzene, and PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) • Chemical by-products (Dioxins): Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD and PCDF) This application note describes methods and results for extraction of the POPs listed above, with tables comparing ASE to traditional extraction methods.

Meeting the Upcoming European Commission Performance Criteria for the Use of Triple Quadrupole GC-MS/MS as a Confirmatory Method for PCDD/Fs in Food and Feed Samples

Instrument Type: GCMSMS

Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) constitute a group of highly toxic organic compounds. PCDD/Fs have been characterized by the US Environmental Protection Agency as likely to be carcinogenic to humans. Recent technological advances in GC-MS/MS technology led to GC-MS/MS being considered a reliable tool that can be used to control the maximum levels for PCDD/Fs in food and feed. In this work, the performance of the Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 Evo triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS for the analysis of PCDD/Fs was assessed.
