Abstract

Anew multi-residue method for the determination of 25 acidic/neutral pharmaceuticals (antibiotics, anti-inflammatory/analgesics, lipid regulating agents, diuretics, triazides, H2-receptor antagonists, cardiac glicozides and angiotensin II antagonists) and personal care products (sunscreen agents and preservatives) in surface water with the usage of a new technique: ultra performance liquid chromatography-negative electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (lJPLC-MS/MS) was developed and validated. The novel UPLC system with 1.7 mu m particle-packed column allowed for good resolution of analytes with the application of low mobile phase flow rates (0.05 mL min(-1)) and short retention times (from 4.7 min to 13.3 min) delivering a fast and cost-effective multi-residue method. SPE with the usage of Oasis MCX strong cation-exchange mixed-mode polymeric sorbent was chosen for sample clean-up and concentration. The influence of mobile-phase composition, matrix assisted ion suppression and SPE recovery on the sensitivity of the method was identified and quantified. The instrumental limits of quantification varied from 0.2 mu g L-1 to 30 mu g L-1. The method limits of quantification were at low nanogram per litre levels and ranged from 0.3 ng L-1 to 30 ng L-1. The instrumental and method intra-day and inter-day repeatabilities were on average less than 5%. The method was successfully applied for the determination of PPCPs in River Taff. Thirteen compounds were determined in river water at levels ranging from a single to a few hundred nanograms per litre. Among them were ten pharmaceuticals (aspirin, salicylic acid, ketoprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, ibuprofen, mefenamic acid, furosemide, sulfasalazine and valsartan) and three personal care products (methyl- and ethylparaben and 4-benzophenone).
