Stefano Pelagatti, Paolo Magni, Fausto Pigozzo
Purpose: We present a newly developed gas sampling valve module for the Thermo Scientific™ TRACE™ 1300 Series Gas Chromatograph (GC).
|GC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Green Tea Extracted by QuEChERS with Acetonitrile as Final Solvent|
Cojocariu C., Morgan P., Silcock P., Pelagatti S., Magni P. and Pigozzo F.
This poster describes the analysis of several challenging pesticides from green tea samples using GC-MS/MS and acetonitrile as final extraction solvent. The compounds analysed are representatives of various classes of pesticides, such as carboxamids, OC, OP, pyrethriods, aromatic, phenylamides.
|Determination of Veterinary Drug Residues in Milk by GC/MS and GC/ECD|
Yu Chongtian, Lv Jianxia
Purpose: Develop a rapid, sensitive method for determining amitraz and its metabolites in milk.
Methods: Samples were hydrolyzed in acidic condition and extracted with hexane. After derivativation, the samples were analyzed by GC-ECD or directly by GC-MS.
Results: The results show that GC-MS determination of amitraz and its metabolites is rapid and sensitive.
|General Workflow For Confident Identification of Unknown Compounds in Forensic, Petroleum, Food, Environmental, and Biological Materials: The GC-HRT Advantage|
David E. Alonso, Clecio Klitzke, Liz Humston-Fulmer, Jonathan Byer, and Joe Binkley
GC-HRT is an indispensable tool for complex sample analysis.
-Accurate mass measurements can be leveraged to calculate robust chemical formulae
-A workflow that includes complementary EI and CI-HRT analysis results for rigorous compound indentification
|Method Optimization for Comprehensive Characterization of Petroleum with High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry Platforms|
Clecio F. Klitzke, David Alonso, Kevin Siek, Elizabeth Humston-Fulmer, Joe Binkley, Jeff Patrick
These results show the utility of high resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry with high mass accuracy for comprehensive petroleomic studies. GC-HRT MS is especially useful for adding structural information in the analysis of complex samples like crude oil.
|Crude Oil And Asphaltene Characterization by Pyrolysis Coupled to Gas Chromatography High Resolution Time-of-flight Mass Spectrometry|
Clecio F. Klitzke, David Alonso, Joe Binkley, Jeffery Patrick
Py-GC-HRTOFMS analysis with high resolution and high mass accuracy is crucial for identification of crude oil and asphaltene pyrolysis products by unequivocal chemical formula assignment, with enhancement of sensitivity and selectivity. Analysis of petroleum and respective asphaltene fractions from diverse geographical origins are under evaluation as part of future work.
|AUTOMATED WORKFLOW FOR THE DETERMINATION OF FATTY ACID METHYL ESTERS (FAME)|
Beat Schilling1, Reto Bolliger2, Guenter Boehm2
Transesterification of fatty acid esters with Na-methoxide is a fast, efficient and very robust method for fat analysis in food samples. With the use of three ISs the completeness of the transesterification as well as the extent of undesired saponification can be checked.
The PALworkstation allows to fully automate the FAME preparation, including injection into the GC.
|GC-MS Comparison of Lavindin Grosso Oil Obtained by Steam Distillation and SFE|
Claudia Worley, Lisa Zona, Susan Sonchik Marine
Oil was extracted from Lavindin Grosso using steam distillation and using supercritical fluid extraction (SFE). Multiple analyses of the same extract demonstrated repeatability of the analytical method. The variability between batches of distillate bracketed the composition obtained by SFE. The differences among the oils could be attributed more to where the lavender was grown than to the extraction method.
