Article
Hemp has been an agricultural commodity for millennia, and it has been undergoing a resurgence in interest and production due to its high content of cannabinoids, protein, fiber and other ingredients. For legal possession and use throughout the USA, hemp and hemp products must have delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration < 0.3%. As with mo...
Article
An evaluation of acute dietary exposure to pesticide residues, applying deterministic and stochastic methods, was performed for a selected group of pesticides in two representative age groups from Argentina. Thus, 28 active ingredients (a.i.) and 75 food items were evaluated for the group of 2–5-year-old children, while 9 a.i. and 59 food items wer...

Argentina, together with the USA and Brazil, produces approximately 80% of the total worldwide glyphosate loadings. The development of a simplified ultra-high performance liquid chromatographic tandem mass spectrometric method (UHPLC-MS/MS) for the determination of glyphosate, aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) and glufosinate in water is described,...

Imidacloprid is a systemic insecticide belonging to the neonicotinoid family. It was the first neonicotinoid introduced in the mid-1990s, and since then, its use has grown rapidly to control pests in a variety of agricultural crops. Several studies have shown that neonicotinoids translocate to the nectar and pollen of treated plants, which represen...
Article
A chronic dietary risk assessment for pesticide residues was conducted for four age groups of the Argentinian population following the procedure recommended by the WHO. The National Theoretical Maximum Daily Intake (NTMDI) for 308 pesticides was calculated for the first time, using the Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) from several Argentinean regulati...
Article
An optimized flow injection hydride generation atomic absorption spectroscopy (FI-HGAAS) method was used to determine total arsenic in selected food samples (beef, chicken, fish, milk, cheese, egg, rice, rice-based products, wheat flour, corn flour, oats, breakfast cereals, legumes and potatoes) and to estimate their contributions to inorganic arse...

A sample preparation method for aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) determination in raw milk was optimized following the quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged and safe (QuEChERS) strategy, as an alternative to the classic immunoaffinity column clean-up (IAC). The method was adapted to address the complexity of the milk matrix, and to be suitable for final determi...
Article
The objectives of this study were to assess aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) contamination in bulk tank milk, and to further identify the risk factors associated with the presence of AFM1 in raw milk in Argentina. The presence of AFM1 was investigated in 160 bulk tank milk samples collected from farms located in the most important milk production region in Arge...
Article
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between glyphosate and phosphate fertilizer application and their contribution to surface water runoff contamination. The study was performed in Aquic Argiudoll soil (Tezanos Pinto series). Four treatments were assessed on three dates of rainfall simulation after fertilizer and herbicide applic...
Article
The distribution of inorganic arsenic species in groundwater used as drinking water supply by the peri-urban and rural population from central-western area of Santa Fe Province, Argentina, was studied. An analytical methodology based on an online system of atomic absorption spectrometry with hydride generation and flow injection (FI-HGAAS) was used...
Article
Sediments are important elements of aquatic ecosystems and in general sediments accumulate diverse toxic substances. Amphibians potentially have a greater risk of exposure to contaminants in sediments, and the test of sediments provides first lines of evidences. Sediment outdoor microcosm experiments were conducted to analyze biological endpoints (...
Article
An optimised FI-HGAAS method was applied to determine the total selenium concentrations in selected high consumption food (fish, beef, chicken, milk, rice, wheat flour, egg) and to estimate their contribution to the Argentinean dietary intake, whose information is scarce nowadays. Through several optimisation steps a suitable method was achieved sh...
Article
BACKGROUND: Arsenic decontamination of drinking water by adsorption is a simple and robust operation. When designing packed bed adsorbers for arsenic, the main problems are the slow diffusion kinetics of As in microporous media and the lack of simple equations for predicting the performance of the equipment. Commercial iron-doped granular activated...
Article
Organochlorine compounds (OCCs), like pesticides (OCPs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), are persistent lipophilic chemicals classified as endocrine-disruptors. Caiman latirostris inhabits wetlands throughout north-eastern Argentina and may accumulate OCCs. The aims of this study were to determine OCC residues in the eggs of C. latirostris and...
Article
A simple and robust on-line sequential injection system based on solid phase extraction (SPE) coupled to a flow injection hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometer (FI-HGAAS) with a heated quartz tube atomizer (QTA) was developed and optimized for the determination of As(III) in groundwater without any kind of sample pretreatment. The metho...
Article
A flow injection system coupled to hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry with heated quartz tube atomizer was employed for the selective determination of As(III) in real groundwater samples under nonacidic conditions. The use of low-acidity conditions was carefully evaluated in order to minimize the interconversion of redox arsenic spec...
Article
The concentrations of total arsenic in cow’s raw milk and in the livestock drinking water were determined and compared, in order to establish the influence of natural arsenic levels in groundwaters on the final presence of arsenic in milk production of the most important dairy region in Argentina. A dry ashing procedure was used for the mineralisat...
Article
Organochlorine compounds (OCCs), such as pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), are persistent lipophilic chemicals identified as endocrine disruptors, mainly with estrogen-like effects. Northeastern Argentina, near the Paraná River, is characterized by intensive farming and agricultural activities and industrial development, and is there...

In this paper we report the results of surveys conducted in Argentina between 1997 and 1998 to know the Cd concentrations in kidney from horses of different age, sex, and origin. Cd in renal cortex and medulla was positively correlated, and higher concentrations in the cortex were found. No significant differences between values from left and right...

Saving time, lowering costs, and increasing reliability are current trends in multiresidue determination of pesticide residues, specially in food plant quality control. Screening procedures using adsorbents and microcartridges for extraction and purification of fatty samples have been introduced. This paper describes the performance of an alternati...
Article
To fit a linear relationship between response and concentration is a highly desirable condition of the behaviour of the method, and represents the proportionality between the variables, but many times linear model is not adequate to explain their relationship and other models must be chosen. After a good diagnostic and verification of linearity, it...
