Analysis of Environmental Contaminants in Water Using an Agilent 6470 LC/TQ Instrument

The analytical demands for detecting organic contaminants in water at low ng/L level have pushed the development of new methodologies using LC/TQ instrumentation. In this regard, and in the last few years, advances in sensitivity and selectivity have made this challenge possible. This webinar will focus on the use of the new 6470 LC-MS-MS from Agilent Technologies for the sub ng/L level detection of several pharmaceuticals and pesticides in surface waters. Examples of optimization of several source...

In a proof-of-concept study, German scientists have shown that exhaled breath can be used as a novel sampling medium by sports testing organisations for doping control, paving the way for another mode of noninvasive testing.

The characterization of hydrocarbon, oxygen-containing, nitrogen-containing, sulfur-containing and halogen-containing chemicals in various coal-derived liquids by GC/MS, GCxGC-TOFMS and FTICR MS has been reviewed.

Organic gunshot residues that have been deposited on human hands and other surfaces after shooting a weapon can be analysed in the field by swab touch spray mass spectrometry, eliminating sample preparation and reducing waiting times.

Selected key technologies of the analytical science industry are discussed by Steve Down with reference to burgeoning application areas and the scope for future improvements.

Ion source pressure plays a significant role in the process of ionization and the subsequent ion transmission inside a mass spectrometer. Pressurizing the ion source to a gas pressure greater than atmospheric pressure is a relatively new approach that aims to further improve the performance of atmospheric pressure ionization sources. A brief review on the development of super-atmospheric pressure ion sources, including high-pressure electrospray, field desorption and superheated ESI, and the strategies to...
