Application Note: Detection of Trace-Level Herbicides in Drinking, Surface and Ground Water Using the Agilent 1200 Infinity Series Online SPE Solution
5 July 2013
This Application Note demonstrates the performance of the Agilent 1200 Inﬁnity Series Online SPE Solution, in combination with the Agilent 6460 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS System, for the analysis for herbicides at trace levels in water. The method conforms to the German DIN standard 38407-36 for the determination of selected neutral herbicides and herbicide metabolites relevant for surface and drinking water quality. The performance of the method has been successfully tested in an interlaboratory validation study. Linearity, area and retention time (RT) precision, as well as concentration precision in real water samples are shown.
