ABSTRACT
This paper describes a novel method for sensitive determination of thiamethoxam, imidacloprid and acetamiprid based on solid-phase extraction with multiwalled carbon nanotubes as the packed materials. Factors that maybe influence the enrichment efficiency, such as sample flow rate, sample pH, and sample volume, were investigated in detail. Under the optimized conditions, the detection limits of thiamethoxam, imidacloprid and acetamiprid were 6.1, 5.4 and 6.7 ng L−1, respectively. The experimental results indicated that there was good linearity ( R 2>0.9993) over the range of 0.08~100 ng mL−1 and good reproducibility with the relative standard deviations over the range of 0.7~1.1% ( n=6). The proposed method has been applied to the analysis of real-world water samples, and satisfactory achievements were obtained. The average spiked recoveries were in the range of 87.5~109.8%. All the results indicated that the proposed method could be used for the simultaneous determination of the three pesticides in environmental water samples at trace levels.
