Analysis of Glufosinate, Glyphosate, and AMPA in Drinking Water Using a Triple Quadrupole LC/MS/MS System
Glufosinate is a popular amino acid-based herbicide and glyphosate a popular foliage treatment herbicide. Glyphosate metabolizes in soil or water to form aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA). In this example, Appendix Method 22 is used to analyze glufosinate, glyphosate, and AMPA. In addition, by using the LCMS-8050, samples can be analyzed directly without the pretreatment process of concentrating samples by solid phase extraction.
