Use of a Particle Beam Interface Combined with Mass Spectrometry/Negative Chemical Ionization to Determine Polar Herbicide Residues in Soil by Liquid Chromatography
Abstract:The use of mass spectrometry/negative chemical ionization (MS/NCI), in combination with selected-ion monitoring, allows sensitive and selective determination of polar and thermally unstable herbicide residues by liquid chromatography coupled to a particle beam interface. The method has been applied to the analysis of soil samples for herbicide residues, using various procedures for their extraction and employing matrix-standard calibration to avoid quantitative errors due to transfer of matter through the interface. Data for the fragment ions found in the MS/NCI procedure and chromatograms from analyses of real samples are also presented.
