Novel multiresidue method for determination of pesticides in red wine using gas chromatography–mass spectrometry and solid phase extraction

A new multiresidue method was developed for determination of 25 pesticide residues in red wine by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry with a single run of 23.63min. Samples were extracted from wine with solid phase extraction using Oasis HLB. Mixture of methanol and water was used for rinsing, while acetonitrile and n-hexane were used as elution solvents. Method was validated according to SANCO/12571/2013 criteria in wide linearity range (limit of quantification – 400μgL−1). Limits of quantification (LOQ) were well below 10μgL−1 for most pesticides and recoveries at 2×LOQ and
