A stir bar coated with β-cyclodextrin-bonded-silica (CDS) as novel sorbent has been developed and used to analyze seven phenolic compounds in aqueous samples, followed by thermal desorption and gas chromatography-mass spectrometric detection. Significant parameters affecting sorption process such as the time and temperature of sorption and desorption, ionic strength, pH and stirring rate have been optimized and discussed. The coating has a high thermal stability up to 300°C and long application lifetime (80 times). The porous structure of CDS coating provides high surface area and allows high extraction efficiency. Under the selected conditions, linearity range of 0.1-400 μg/L, limit of quantifications of 0.08-3.3 μg/L and method detection limits of 0.02-1.00 μg/L have been obtained. A satisfactory repeatability (RSD ≤ 6.5, n = 7) with good linearity (0.9975 ≤ r(2) ≤ 0.9996) of results illustrated a good performance of the present method. The recovery of different natural water samples was higher than 81.5%.

    ABSTRACT: A novel approach for the sample pre-treatment and determination of eight phenolic compounds in environmental water samples has been developed by hyphenating solid-phase extraction (SPE) and liquid-phase microextraction (LPME) techniques based on solid organic drop combined with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry detection (GC-MS). After pre-concentration and purification of the sample through column containing 60 mg of β-cyclodextrin-bonded silica particles as stationary phase, under the optimum conditions, LPME technique has been performed on the eluent solution. Under the selected conditions, limit of detection (LOD) of 0.002-0.04 μg/L (S/N=3), limit of quantification (LOQ) of 0.007-0.15 μg/L (S/N=10), pre-concentration factor of 752-3135 and linearity range of 0.01-25 μg/L have been obtained. A reasonable repeatability (RSD≤9.5%, n=5) with satisfactory coefficient of determination has been obtained between 0.9981 and 0.9997. The relative recoveries of the waste, sea, river and well water samples were higher than 79%.

    ABSTRACT: The essential oils (EOs) possess amazing properties explaining the interest for their applications in many essential domains. They also present the disadvantage of their chemical instability in the presence of air, light, moisture, and high temperatures. The paper focuses on two of the most known and used EOs, lavender and mint, respectively. The idea of the study was to protect them using the encapsulated systems. The originality of the work consists in the combination between the advantages of the molecular encapsulation of the EOs by cyclodextrins (CD) with the advantages offered by the sol-gel process. Original formulations have been processed by entrapping these essential oils in silica matrices obtained from a colloidal silica sol by the aqueous route of the sol-gel method. Another non-toxic ingredient, β-cyclodextrin, able to form inclusion complexes (ICs) with the essential oils has been used. The characterization methods (chromatography, UV-vis, IR, and NMR spectroscopies) have evidenced the presence of the mentioned inclusion complexes. Due to their formation, which modifies the water solubility of the EOs, the chromatographic analysis was possible using water as solvent, which is a novelty in EOs determinations. Protected from both the cyclodextrin and silica matrix, the essential oils became more resistant versus the effects of the environment factors. Thus, the resulted powders can find applications in domains as agriculture, food industries, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and medicine.
