USE OF THE QUECHERS METHODOLOGY TO DEVELOP METHODS FOR DETERMINATION THE  OF PESTICIDES RESIDUES IN VEGETABLE OILS AND OILSEEDS RAW MATERIALS

The block - chart and metrological parameters of MRM (using multiresidues method) for determination the microquantities of pesticides of various chemical classes and groups in vegetable oils (sunflower, soybean, rapeseed) and oilseed raw materials (seeds, grains, croutons based on original and experimental sample preparation using the methodology of simultaneous extraction QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe) and instrumental analysis by gas-liquid chromatography with mass detector (GLC/MS) and high performance liquid chromatography with a mass detector (HPLC/MS/MS) methods is proposed. The method allows to simultaneously determine a large number of pesticides (organochlorine and organophosphorus pesticides, pyrethroids, conazoles, sulfonylureas, carbamates, strobilurins, neonicotinoids, acetanilides, etc.) in the above matrices with metrological characteristics at the level of regulatory requirements. The technique was successfully used in the routine analysis to control the relevant products in 2014-2017, and the implementation of professional tests.

Key words: pesticides, vegetable oils, oilseed raw materials, chromatography, mass spectrometry.
