An interlaboratory validation study was conducted to establish the method performance characteristics of an immunoaffinity column (IAC) cleanup procedure followed by LC/MS for the determination of fumonisins B-1 (FB1) and B-2 (FB2) and combined FB1 + FB2 in corn. The test portion is extracted with acetonitrile methanol water (25 + 25 + 50). The extract is filtered, diluted with phosphate-buffered saline solution, and applied to an IAC. FB1 and FB2 are removed with methanol, followed by water, then directly determined by RPLC with MS detection using selected-ion monitoring of two characteristic ions in each case. Naturally contaminated corn samples were milled to a fine powder and mixed to produce three samples with target levels of combined FB1 + FB2 ranging from 350 to 4000 mu g/kg. Of 15 initially participating laboratories, two failed to report results and another did not follow the prescribed method. Thus, valid results were obtained from 12 participants located in 11 countries. Statistical analysis of the results produced RSDr values of 4.6-11.9, 1.9-12.6, and 1.4-11.5% for FB1, FB2, and combined FBI + FB2, respectively; the corresponding RSDR values were 19.8-23.8, 18.2-25.5, and 18.8-23.2%. The three concentration levels of combined FB1 + FB2 were 534, 1194, and 1954 mu g/kg. HorRat values for r and R were all <2.0, indicating that the method is suitable as a regulatory method for the enforcement of European Union limits for fumonisins in corn.

Oznur, Kuntasal; Deniz, Karman; Daniel, Wang; TUNCEL, SEMRA; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2005-12-16)
A multiphase assurance approach was developed for the accurate and precise determination of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in different microenvironments. This approach includes (i) development of a method including adsorption of VOCs onto a multisorbent media followed by short-path thermal desorption (SPTD) pre-concentration and gas chromatography (GC) coupled to a mass spectrometry (MS) quantification, (ii) validation of the sampling and analytical method and (iii) validation of the data using a multid...
Analysis of Deoxynivalenol, Zearalenone, T-2, and HT-2 Toxins in Animal Feed by LC/MS/MS-A Critical Comparison of Immunoaffinity Column Cleanup with No Cleanup
Senyuva, Hamide Z.; Gilbert, John; Turkoz, Gozde; Leeman, David; Donnelly, Carol (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2012-11-01)
A comparison has been made of an LC/MS/MS method using direct analysis of acetonitrile extracts of feed and cereal samples and a method using acetonitrile extraction and subsequent immunoaffinity column (IAC) cleanup. Naturally contaminated samples containing one or more of deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T-2, and HT-2 toxins were analyzed together with test materials containing known toxin levels. LC/MS/MS ion ratios and peak profiles, repeatability, and LOQs were used as the basis for comparing the two appro...
Characterization of polyaniline via pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Hacaloğlu, Jale; Kücükyavuz, Zühal (2008-04-05)
In this work, direct insertion probe pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique was applied to investigate the thermal and the structural characteristics of electrochemically prepared HCl and HNO3-doped polyaniline (PANI) films. It has been determined that the thermal degradation of both samples showed three main thermal degradation stages. The first stage around 50-60 degrees C was associated with evolution of solvent and low-molecular-weight species adsorbed on the polymer, the second stage just above 150 degr...
Characterization of the polymer of a dipyrrolyl monomer by pyrolysis mass spectrometry

In this work, characterization of a homopolymer of succinic acid bis(4-pyrrol-1-ylphenyl) ester prepared by galvonastatic polymerization was carried out by direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Although decomposition of the monomer yielding mainly butadionic acid and pyrrole occurred under the galvonastatic polymerization conditions, growth of the polymer through the pyrrole moieties was also achieved, yielding a ladder-type polymer film. The polypyrrole chains contained both quinoid and aromatic units as in ...
