  • Inter-laboratory validation of solid-phase microextraction for the analysis of triazine herbicides and their metabolites at ppt level in water samples

Abstract

The accuracy and precision of solid-phase microextraction (SPME) were validated in an inter-laboratory study including ten laboratories for the analysis of triazine herbicides and their metabolites at parts per trillion (ppt) level in aqueous samples. The SPME conditions were optimized in order to obtain maximum sensitivity. It is concluded that SPME is reliable technique for the quantitative analysis of water samples containing triazine herbicides in concentrations around the European limit of 100 ppt for individual pesticides in drinking water.
