ABSTRACT
An optimised extraction and cleanup method for the analysis of pesticide in natural water samples is presented. Sixteen pesticides of different polarity and from the different chemical classes (organophosphates, triazines, benzimidazoles, carbamates, carbamides, neonicotinoides, methylureas, phenylureas and benzohydrazides), most frequently used in Serbia, were selected for the analysis. Liquid-phase microextraction in a single hollow fibre (HF-LPME) has been applied for sample preparation. The concentrations of pesticides were determined using HPLC-MS/MS method with electrospray ionisation. The extraction behaviour and selection of the experimental conditions was predicted based on log D and p Ka values of targeted pesticides, which were calculated applying the computer software ACD/Labs PhysChem Suite v12. The influence of the donor pH and concentration of pesticides, organic phase composition as well as the extraction time on the extraction efficiency was investigated. Optimum extraction conditions were evaluated with respect to the investigated parameters of the extraction. The extraction method was validated for 10 out of 16 studied pesticides. Linear range of the pesticides was 0.1–5 µg L−1 with the correlation coefficient from 0.991 to 0.9998, and the relative standard deviation for three standard measurements was between 0.2 and 11.8%. The limits of detections ranged from 0.026 to 0.237 µg L−1 and the limits of quantifications from 0.094 to 0.793 µg L−1. The optimised two-phase HF-LPME method was successfully applied for determination of moderately polar as well low-polar pesticides in the environmental water samples.
