Residue Analysis of Etoxazole in Red Pepper using Gas Chromatography: Application to Dissipation Pattern
Sung-Woo Kim, Jin Jang, Md. Musfiqur Rahman, A. M. Abd El-Aty, Ah-Young Ko, Jong-Heui Choi, Jae-Han Shim

The dSPE of QuEChERS was replaced with an SPE cartridge, which provided a very clean chromatogram, although a small recovery percentage was obtained. The method fulfilled all validation criteria and was useful for monitoring etoxazole residues in red pepper. It can also be used and optimized for other fruit and vegetable matrices.

Simultaneous multi-determination and transfer of eight pesticide residues from green tea leaves to infusion using gas chromatography
Sung-Woo Kim, Soon-Kil Cho, A. M. Abd El-Aty, Md. Musfiqur Rahman, Jeong-Heui Choi, Jae-Han Shim

Acetonitrile was used as the extraction solvent with sodium chloride to enhance the partitioning of analytes into the organic phase. Recovery indicated good method accuracy and repeatability, and was within the acceptable range for residue determinations. The mere presence of pesticide residues in tea does not necessarily mean that the tea has become toxic and would pose a health hazard. We revealed that only a negligible or small percentage of pesticides in tea is transferred to the infusion.

Matrix enhancement effect: A blessing or curse for gas chromatography?
Jae-Han Shim, Md. Musfiqur Rahman, A. M. Abd El-Aty

A sharp, narrow, and sensitive peak is a pre-condition for a sensitive GC analysis. Therefore, a protectant is needed to protect the analyte from any type of distortion for integration and to prevent overestimation. Existing solutions do not overcome these problems completely due to limitations. As the matrix enhancement problem originated from matrix components, its solution should come from similar components.

CAPILLARY ELECTROPHORESIS OF APIGENIN
Paulina Furmaniak, Pawel Kubalczyk, Rafal Glowacki

* Application of an appropriate mode of extraction allowed to use on-line stacking method for the determination of apigenin in plant extracts,
* The low limit of detection was 5 nmol in 1 mL of plant extract,
* Presented procedure allows approximately 20-fold increase of sensitivity,
* Elaborated assay can be useful for the determination of apigenin in biological samples.

INTERACTION BETWEEN WHEY PROTEIN NANOPARTICLES AND FATTY ACIDS
Hassan, Z.M.R*, Awad R. A.*, El-Sayed, M. M. **, Mevat I. Foda**, Otzen, D.*** and Heba H. Salama**

Nanocomplexes can be formed from WPI with good cytotoxic effect to tumer cells using cis-vaccenic and linolenic fatty acids comparable to oleic acid. It was a new interesting observation being that the nanocomplexes formed of WPI with fatty acids has a comparable cytotoxcisty to that of a-LA and ß-lg and can be used in tumor therapy.

MS Data Processing With Full Flexibility Of Universal Processing Software
Frans Schoutsen, Barbara van Cann, Vincent Jespers, Michal Godula

Liquid Chromatography (LC) in combination with triple quadrupole Mass Spectrometry (MS) is more and more a common analysis technique in routine laboratories. Especially when using MS/MS selected reaction monitoring (SRM) for a large number of components data handling can be a bottle neck. This poster will show MS data processing of pesticides in water samples using an already established chromatography data system which is now also capable of processing large quantities of MS data.

Analysis of Dithiocarbamate Pesticides by GC-MS
Soma Dasgupta1,2, Sumaiyya Mujawar1, Kaushik Banerjee1, Hans-Joachim Huebschmann3, Paul Silcock4

Analysis of dithiocarbamate pesticides (DTCs) using an optimized GC-MS method is described. DTCs are not stable and cannot be extracted or analyzed directly. The purpose of this work was develop a reliable method for identification and quantification of residues.

Analysis of Multiresidue Pesticides Present in Ayurvedic Churna by GC-MS/MS
Manoj Surwade, Sunil T Kumar, Aarti Karkhanis, Manish Kumar, Soma Dasgupta, Hans-Joachim Huebschmann, Paul Silcock, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Analysis of Herbal powders or ‘churnas’ using an optimized GC-MS/MS method is described. As they have high amount of matrix co-extractives, they pose critical analytical problems. The purpose of this work was overcome the effect of the matrix and develop a reliable method.

Automated Solid-Phase Extraction of Oraganochlorine Pesticides from Drinking Water
Frans Schoustsen and Pranathi R Perati

A new method was developed to automate the capture and elution of Organochlorine pesticides from drinking water. The concentrated analytes were then analyzed by GC with Electron Capture Detection (ECD).
