Abstract

A simple and solvent-minimized sample preparation technique based on two-phase hollow fiber-protected liquid-phase microextraction has been developed and used for the determination of partition coefficient and analysis of selected pesticides in environmental water samples. The analysis was performed by gas chromatography–electron capture detector. Three pesticides namely hexaconazole, quinalphos, and methidathion were considered as target analytes. Extraction conditions such as solvent identity, salt concentration, stirring speed, extraction time, length of the hollow fiber, and volume of donor phase were optimized. The analytes were extracted from a donor phase (water sample) through 3 µL of an organic solvent immobilized in the pores of a porous polypropylene hollow fiber and then into the acceptor phase present inside the hollow fiber. Excellent extractions of the analytes were achieved under the optimized conditions, with relative standard deviations of 4.6–7.9%, correlation coefficients (r2) of 0.9954–0.9986 and limits of detection of 3–7 ng L-1. The proposed method provided good average enrichment factors of up to 250-fold. The partition coefficients of the analytes determined were found to be directly correlated with the enrichment factor. The present methodology also confirms the robustness of microextraction for monitoring trace levels of pesticides in environmental water samples.
