Analysis of near 400 Pesticides in Tea

Introduction

With routine labs tasked with the analysis of larger and larger target lists, and with greater numbers of samples requiring analysis, we deployed simple sample preparation protocols such as solvent extraction to meet the need of high sample throughput with lower cost. In this work, we demonstrate how a practical simple solvent extraction of black tea can be employed to achieve the analysis of a large multi-residue panel of pesticides, with low limits of detection, minimal matrix effects, and excellent method performance.
