A simple and easy direct solid-phase extraction (SPE) method was developed for the analysis of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in olive oil using a dual-layer cartridge containing activated Florisil and a mixture of octadecyl (C18)-bonded and zirconia-coated silicas. Undiluted olive oil was applied directly to the SPE cartridge, and the sample was eluted with acetonitrile solvent. Background in the extract was found to be low enough for either gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) or high-performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection (HPLC–FLD) analysis.

A method has been developed and validated for the simultaneous analysis of different veterinary drug residues (macrolides, tetracyclines, quinolones, and sulfonamides) in honey. Honey samples were dissolved with Na2EDTA, and veterinary residues were extracted from the supernatant by solid-phase extraction (SPE), using OASIS HLB cartridges.

This paper investigates the potential use of composted cotton gin trash (CCGT) as a pesticide sorption medium in remediation of contaminated tailwater. CCGT was found to contain a large organic matter fraction (25.22%).

A multiclass method has been developed for the determination and confirmation in honey of tetracyclines (chlortetracycline, doxycycline, oxytetracycline, and tetracycline), fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, danofloxacin, difloxacin, enrofloxacin, and sarafloxacin), macrolides (tylosin), lincosamides (lincomycin), aminoglycosides (streptomycin), sulfonamides (sulfathiazole), phenicols (chloramphenic

A method making use of turbulent flow chromatography automated online extraction with tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) was developed for the analysis of 4 quinolones and 12 fluoroquinolones in honey. The manual sample preparation was limited to a simple dilution of the honey test portion in water followed by a filtration.

A rapid confirmatory method for monitoring chloramphenicol (CAP) residues in honey, whole milk, and eggs is presented. This method is based on the polymer monolith microextraction (PMME) technique and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)?electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (MS).

A confirmatory method using liquid chromatography?electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry for determination of five macrolide antibiotics including spiramycin, tilmicosin, oleandomycin, erythromycin, and tylosin in raw milk is presented. Macrolides were extracted from raw milk by acetonitrile, and sample extracts were further cleaned up using solid-phase extraction cartridges.

An analytical method for the determination of OTC and TC residues in honey was developed. Sample treatment involves an extraction in EDTA-McIlvaine buffer, followed by a solid-phase cleanup step. With regard to the cleanup procedure, different SPE cartridges were evaluated and the results presented.

A method using liquid chromatography electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (LC/ESI-MS/MS) for the determination of trace levels of five macrolide antibiotics (spiramycin, tilmicosin, oleandomycin, erythromycin, and tylosin) in eggs is presented.

Liquid chromatography?electrospray ionization mass spectrometry methods (LC-ESI-MS and LC-ESI-MS/MS) for the determination of five macrolide antibiotics including spiramycin, tilmicosin, oleandomycin, erythromycin, and tylosin in honey are presented.
