There is an increasing interest in the quantification of pyrethroid residues in environmental samples due to questions about their potential impact on aquatic ecosystems. Recent advances in research have been made in the use of stable isotope labelled internal standards for nine major pyrethroid active ingredients in water, sediment, influent, effluent and biosolids in addition to their use for simplifying SPME based quantification of bioavailable residues in environmental matrices. The webinar will demonstrate the ways these D6 labeled materials have been used for these matrices and will present the improvements in precision associated with these approaches. As a result of this research; newly available partition coefficients have been developed, new methods have been derived for quantification of residue, and guidance for assessing environmental matrices by pyrethroid analysis for the simultaneous determination of free and total concentrations by SPME has been developed.
