Direct Analysis of Natural Waters by Electron Spray Ionization and High-Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry Detection. Determination of Pesticides of Various Classes
The possibility of directly determining 36 pesticides (derivatives of urea, triazines, triazoles, imidazoles, carbamates, triazinones, benzamides, and pyridazinones and organophosphorus pesticides) by electrospray ionization with high-resolution quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry in natural waters is demonstrated. A significant matrix effect is observed in the determination of pesticides in natural waters, and the use of the standard addition method is proposed for their determination in test samples, both undiluted and diluted with deionized water. The analytical range of the analytes was 0.5–50 ng/mL. The relative standard deviation of the results does not exceed 10%; the time required for the analysis is 10–15 min.
