Flavour Profiling of Milk using HiSorb Sorptive Extraction and TD–GC–MS

This study shows that the wide range of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) giving rise to the flavour of milk can be identified by high-capacity sorptive extraction using PDMS probes, with analysis by thermal desorption–gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (TD–GC–MS).


Fast Routine Analysis of Polar Pesticides in Foods by Suppressed Ion Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry

This validated method enables the quantification of ten polar ionic compounds or four ionic pesticides and their metabolites in different food matrices by coupling ion chromatography to a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.


Determination of 17 Mycotoxins in Cereals and Cereal Based Food Using Liquid Chromatography–Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry

A simple and fast multi-mycotoxin method that covers the legislated mycotoxins as well as 3- and 15-acetyl-deoxynivalenol, deoxynivalenol-3-glucoside, nivalenol, its acetyl derivative fusarenon X and sterigmatocystin.
