Qualitative Analysis of Pyrazole Pesticides in Tea Leaf by Using FastGC-HRTOFMS

Introduction

The FastGC method is a very useful technique for doing rapid GC analyses that result in extremely narrow chromatographic peaks over a shorter time period than traditional GC analyses. Additionally, time-of-flight mass spectrometers (TOFMS) are capable of very fast data acquisition in comparison with other types of mass spectrometers so they are well suited as the detector for the FastGC technique. Furthermore, when the TOFMS is capable of high resolution measurements, the resulting mass spectra contain accurate mass information that can be used to calculate the elemental compositions for each observed m/z.

In this application note, we describe the qualitative analysis of pyrazole pesticides (Fipronil, Ethiprole, Pyraflufen ethyl and Tebfenpyrad) on tea leaves by FastGC/HRTOFMS. Additionally, we confirm that a rapid analysis with high sensitivity is easy to perform and very useful for fast screening.

Method

The tea leaf sample (5g) was prepared using the multiresidue method for agricultural chemicals by GC/MS published by Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, Japan. Pyrozole pesticides were added to make 0.01, 0.05 and 0.1ppm solutions in the prepared solution from tea leaf. These concentrations are equivalent to 4, 20 and 40ppb on the tea leaf material. Each sample was then analyzed 3 times to check the reproducibility of the results.
