new chromatographic techniques for the analysis of pesticides and antibiotics in food and beverage samples

.

The research was financed by the Spanish National Institute for Agrarian and Alimentary Research (INIA) and the Ministry of Education and Science, in collaboration with the company Puleva Biotech.

The new analytical techniques are described in a doctoral thesis by Jorge Juan Soto Chinchilla, from the Department of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Granada, and directed by professors Ana Mara Garca Campaa and Laura Gmiz Gracia.

The methods include cathodoluminiscence detection (CL) connected to flow injection analysis (FIA) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), or capillary electrophoresis (CE) with UV/Vis detection using an online preconcentration technique in the capillary itself, or detection via mass spectrometry (MS). The research was based on carbamates and on sulfonamides.
