Description
Water, sediment, suspended matter and biota were sampled along the Western Scheldt from 2002 to 2006. All matrices were analysed for estrogens, organochlorine and organonitrogen pesticides using SPE, HPLC, GC-MS/MS and LC-MS/MS. more

In order to evaluate the potential risk of endocrine disruptors, the occurrence of these compounds needs to be documented. Water, sediment, suspended matter and biota were sampled along the Western Scheldt from 2002 to 2006. All matrices were analysed for estrogens, organochlorine and organonitrogen pesticides using SPE, HPLC, GC-MS/MS and LC-MS/MS. The aim this part of the ENDIS-RISKS project is to give an overview of the occurrence and the concentration of the selected endocrine disruptors in the Scheldt estuary.

Alpha-Estradiol: SPE GCMS/MS
(1) Description protocol for the detection of organonitrogen pesticides (atrazine, simazine, terbutylazine) in water samples: After pH adjustment, the samples are filtered and extracted using SDB solid phase extraction cartridges. The extracts are analysed by GC-MS/MS (EI). The data processing is performed by Xcalibur 1.3. and MSOffice Excel. The identification of the organonitrogen pesticides is based on the relative retention time and a specific mass spectrum. Quantification is performe
