Abstract

Mass spectrometry is an optoelectronic method of determining organic substances by comparing their mass spectrum with mass spectra found in system libraries. In the case of biological products, substances of interest, biotic or xenobiotics, may be “hidden” from the background of the analyzed matrix noise, which alters the major aspect of the mass spectrum obtained and faces the impossibility of their identification. A gas chromatograph coupled with mass spectrometer (GC-MS) Varian was used, to develop a selected ion monitoring (SIM) method for increasing the signal-to-noise ratio for identifying the disulfoton in urine samples.
