Application of a Mixed-Mode Solid-Phase Extraction and Cleanup Procedure for LC/MS Determination of Thiabendazole and Carbendazim in Apple Juice
Recently, a mixed-mode solid-phase extraction (SPE) procedure was developed for rapid extraction and cleanup for determination of the fungicides thiabendazole and carbendazim in various fruit juices. This paper reports the application of that sample preparation procedure to the liquid chromatographic/mass spectrometric determination of these fungicides in apple juice with detection by positive electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI/MS). Response was linear for sample concentrations from 2 to 500 μg/L (ppb). Recoveries averaged 74% (9% RSD) for carbendazim and 93% (9% RSD) for thiabendazole. After SPE cleanup, no matrix supression was observed for the ESI+ response for either compound studied. The method was applied to the analysis of incurred residues in 4 store-bought apple juices; carbendazim levels ranged from 10 to 70 μg/L and thiabendazole levels ranged from less than 2 to 130 μg/L.
