Busted! First Detection of Steroid Hormones in Pacific Walrus Bones
Charapata P, Horstmann L, and Misarti N

The Pacific walrus (Odobenus rosmarus divergens) is a candidate species for the Endangered Species List because Arctic sea ice has declined significantly in the past decades. This project focuses on validating a method for extracting steroid hormones from archaeological, historical, and modern bone creating a baseline of hormone levels during different climate regimes.

METHOD DEVELOPMENT FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF METHYLMERCURY AND INORGANIC MERCURY IN SEAFOOD
Sergio Carneado, Ariane V. Zmozinski, Carmen Ibáñez-Palomino, Àngels Sahuquillo, José Fermín López-Sánchez, Márcia M. da Silva

This work reports the method development for the simultaneous determination of methylmercury (MeHg+) and inorganic mercury (iHg) species in seafood. The study focused on the extraction and quantification of MeHg+ by liquid chromatography coupled to on-line UV irradiation and cold vapour atomic fluorescence spectroscopy (LC-UV-HG-AFS), using HCl 4 mol L-1 as extractant agent.

Relationships between Water Quality Constituents in the Delta and the Influence of Different Sources of Water
Richard A. Denton and Paul Hutton

Analysis of detailed grab sample data from San Francisco Bay and Delta and development of regression relationships between EC, TDS and water quality constituents such as chloride, bromide, sodium, calcium, sulfate, alkalinity and hardness. The relationships in the interior Delta vary depending upon the percentage contributions from seawater, agricultural drainage and freshwater inflows.

Leveraging CI-H Mass Defect Plots for the Identification of Halogenated Organic Contaminants
Jonathan D. Byer, Mehran Alaee, Karl Jobst, Grazina Pacepavicius, Joe Binkley

A number of legacy contaminants and other pesticides, as well as a number of previously unknown compounds were tentatively identified in the pooled sample. Cl-H mass defect plots are a useful tool for filtering through complex data for the identification of halogenated contaminants. This technique functions as a screening tool for the identification of unknowns, and in the future, may be used as a form of fingerprinting to compare samples.

Flash Pyrolysis Coupled to GCxGC-TOFMS and GC-High Resolution TOFMS for Characterization of Crude Oil and Petroleum Fractions
Clecio F. Klitzke, Joe Binkley, Jeffrey Patrick

The pyrolysis of asphaltenes from discrete crude oil samples shows distinct composition in terms of light and heavy aromatic hydrocarbons and alkyldibenzo-thiophenes. The use of Py–GC×GC–TOFMS is crucial for the determination of isomeric composition, and Py–GC–HRTOFMS with high resolution and high mass accuracy complements the identification by unequivocal chemical formula assignments. The study of the relationships of the crude oil and asphaltene composition are in progress.

Microextraction techniques combined with X-ray fluorescence spectrometry for determination of different metal ions in water
Karina Kocot (a), Beata Zawisza (a), Eva Marguí (b), Ignasi Queralt (c), Rafal Sitko (a)

In present work new preconcentration procedures combining microextraction techniques and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy were developed. Proposed methodologies are promising tools for multielemental analysis enabling detection of natural pollutants in different water samples.

APPLICATION OF LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY WITH UV DETECTION FOR DETERMINATION OF PLANT GROWTH REGULATOR IN COMMON PLANT FERTILIZERS
Borowczyk K., Wyszczelska-Rokiel M., Stachniuk J., Chwatko G., Glowacki R.

1. The methodology allows facile and accurate determination of IBA in common plant fertilizer samples.
2. The analytical figures of linearity, precision and recovery shown during the method validation procedure are well within the criteria for biological sample analysis.
3. In temperature -18, 4 and 25 °C the analyte stays stable for 6 h.
4. The assay should help in control of phytohormones concentration in plants and fertilizers.
