A fast, simple and inexpensive sample preparation method based on the matrix solid-phase extraction (SPE) technique is proposed for the isolation of cypermethrin and its metabolite residues from soils. Both the extraction and clean-up procedures were carried out in two steps and target
compounds were determined by gas chromatography coupled with electron-impact mass spectrometry (GC-EI/MS). The characteristic ions and fragmentation mechanism of cypermethrin were evaluated by electron impact ionization mass spectrometry (EI/MS). After the optimization of different parameters,
such as the extraction solvent, the pesticide was extracted from the matrix with methanol/acetone in a Soxhlet extractor, cleaned up on a Florisil column by elution with a mixture of 30% ethyl acetate in n-hexane and analyzed by gas chromatography-electron impact ionization mass spectrometry
(GC-EI/MS) in the selected ion-monitoring mode (SIM) with permethrin as internal standard. Recovery was in the range 77–118% with relative standard deviations (RSD) between 2.5% and 10.2%. The limit of detection (LOD) was 6.5 µg/kg for cypermethrin. The developed method
was linear in the injection range 6–30 ng, with correlation coefficients greater than 0.9957.
