Global concern over food and environmental pollutants is driving the demand for more rapid and reliable methods for the identification and quantitation of chemical residues in matrices such as food and water. Analyzing pesticide residues in food is a critical step in ensuring a safe food supply, as these contaminants can negatively affect human health. However, screening for these pollutants requires high sensitivity to meet the strict regulatory requirements for maximum residue levels.
Wiley has partnered with Agilent Technologies to bring together a special collection of articles that detail how high resolution mass spectrometry and gas chromatography can be used to screen for pesticides and other contaminants in food and in the environment. This important compendium features content from Agilent Technologies and Wiley publications, including Food Quality & Safety.
In this collection, you’ll read about:
- Trace pesticide residue analysis in complex matrices.
- Multiresidue pesticide evaluation in salmon.
- Determining pesticides and residue distribution in strawberries.
- Assessing multiple pesticide residues in tea.
- Analyzing wastewater effluent samples to screen for toxic chemicals.
- Evaluating the occurrence and distribution of emerging pollutants in water.
By providing resources detailing how to detect pesticides in food and in the environment, we hope to empower readers with the knowledge to provide their customers with a safe, quality product.
