Identification and characterization of a putative new psychoactive substance, 2-(2-(4-chlorophenyl)acetamido)- 3-methylbutanamide, in Spain
The term ‘new psychoactive substances’ (NPS) refers to synthetically changed natural compounds or newly designed compounds intended to elicit a psychotropic response such as stimulation, hallucination or sedation. According ...
Fast determination of 40 drugs in water using large volume direct injection liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry
This work describes a rapid analytical method based on direct sample injection of water samples for the simultaneous identification/quantification of 40 emerging compounds, including pharmaceuticals and drugs of abuse. The ...
Estimation of caffeine intake from analysis of caffeine metabolites in wastewater
Caffeine metabolites in wastewater were investigated as potential biomarkers for assessing caffeine intake in a population. The main human urinary metabolites of caffeine were measured in the urban wastewater of ten European ...
Mass spectrometric identification and structural analysis of the third-generation synthetic cannabinoids on the UK market since the 2013 legislative ban
To examine the impact of the second legal ban on synthetic cannabinoids (SCs) in the UK in February 2013, we surveyed the UK legal high market just before and after the change in legislation, looking for new SCs. The ...
Application of Fast Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry in Combination with the QuEChERS Method for the Determination of Pesticide Residues in Fruits and Vegetables
(Springer Verlag, 2013)
A fast gas chromatography–mass spectrometry method has been developed for multiresidue determination of up to 56 pesticides in fruits and vegetables in a chromatographic run time of <10 min, using a single quadrupole mass ...
Comparison of Simple and Rapid Extraction Procedures for the Determination of Pesticide Residues in Fruit Juices by Fast Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry
(Springer Verlag, 2013)
Three sample treatment methods, based on QuEChERS, solid-phase extraction (SPE) and solid-phase microextraction (SPME), were compared and evaluated in order to obtain the best conditions to determine pesticide residues in ...
Investigation of degradation products of cocaine and benzoylecgonine in the aquatic environment
In this work, ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) coupled to a hybrid quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer (QTOF MS) has allowed the discovery and elucidation of degradation products of cocaine and ...
3-Fluorophenmetrazine, a fluorinated analogue of phenmetrazine:Studies on in vivo metabolism in rat and human, in vitro metabolism in human CYP isoenzymes and microbial biotransformation in Pseudomonas Putida and wastewater using GC and LC coupled to(HR)-MS techniques
Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) as means to estimate illicit drug and new psychoactive substance (NPS) consumption with spatial and temporal resolution is gaining increasing attention. In order to evaluate a given NPS ...
Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry determination of synthetic cathinones and phenethylamines in influent wastewater of eight European cities
The popularity of new psychoactive substances (NPS) has grown in recent years, with certain NPS commonly and preferentially consumed even following the introduction of preventative legislation. With the objective to improve ...
Facilitating high resolution mass spectrometry data processing for screening of environmental water samples: An evaluation of two deconvolution tools
A screening approach was applied to influent and effluent wastewater samples. After injection in a LC-LTQ-Orbitrap, data analysis was performed using two deconvolution tools, MsXelerator (modules MPeaks and MS Compare) and ...
