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: Sample preparation procedures in use in many application areas are still tedious and manually intensive protocols. These characteristics mean that sample treatment is considered the most time-consuming and error-prone part of the analytical scheme. The increasing demand for faster, more cost-effective and environmental friendly analytical methods is a major incentive to improve these conventional procedures and has spurred research in this field during the last decades. This review provides an overview of the most relevant developments and successful approaches proposed in recent years concerning sample preparation. The current state-of-the-art is discussed on the basis of examples selected from representative application areas and involving conventional instrumental techniques for the final determination of the target compounds. Emphasis will be on those techniques and approaches that have already demonstrated their practicality by the analysis of real-life samples, and in particular on those dealing with the determination of minor organic components. The potential of the latest developments in this field for sample treatment simplification and complete hyphenation and integration of analytical process is discussed and the most pressing remaining limitations evaluated.

    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: Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction (SBSE) is a solventless sampling technique first introduced to extract organic analytes from aqueous samples, in the following applied to headspace sampling (HeadSpace Sorptive Extraction - HSSE). In SBSE and HSSE, analytes are sorbed onto a thick film of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) coating a glass-coated magnet. However, PDMS is apolar and not highly effective in recovering polar analytes (i.e. with logK(o/w) below 2), making difficult their sampling in complex matrices. A new generation of medium-to-high polarity polymeric coatings for twisters i.e. polyethyleneglycol-modified silicone (EG) and polyacrylate/polyethyleneglycol (PA) has recently been introduced to overcome this limit. In this study, EG and PA twisters have been applied to SBSE and HSSE of a number of dedicated standard mixtures and real-world samples of vegetable origin to evaluate their capability to increase recovery of medium to highly polar analytes. The results obtained, expressed as percent concentration factor (CF%) versus PDMS twisters taken as reference, showed that analyte logK(o/w) is a key-factor driving the choice of the most effective coating. The new twisters showed to be successful for both SBSE and HSSE, although to a different extent. EG twisters gave high recoveries with analytes over a wide range of polarities and in particular with logK(o/w) below 2 and/or containing hydroxyl or carboxylic functional groups independently on their logK(o/w). On the other hand, PA twisters were selectively effective for highly polar compounds with logK(o/w) below 1.
