Abstract

A method for the determination of imidacloprid in paddy water and soil was developed using liquid chromatography electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/ESI-MS/MS). Separation of imidacloprid was carried out on a Shimadzu C18 column (150 mm × 4.6 mm, 4.6 μm) with an acetonitrile?water (50 : 50, v/v) mobile phase containing 0.1% of acetic acid. The flow rate was 0.3 mL/min in isocratic mode. The product ion at 209 m/z was selected for quantification in multiple-reaction monitoring scan mode. Imidacloprid residues in soil were extracted by a solid-liquid extraction method with acetonitrile. Water samples were filtered and directly injected for analysis without extraction. Detection limits of 0.5 μg/kg and 0.3 μg/L were achieved for soil and water samples, respectively. The method had recoveries of 90 ± 2% (n = 4) for soil samples and 100 ± 2% (n = 4) for water samples. A linear relationship was observed throughout the investigated range of concentrations (1-200 μg/L), with the correlation coefficients ranging from 0.999 to 1.000. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2010.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
