Mass spectrometry is widely used in research and development efforts that lead to novel agrochemicals. The requirements of analytical methods are variable. This webinar will cover example methods, which are applied at different stages of agrochemical research and development. These diverse methods are based on chromatography/ tandem mass spectrometry and high-throughput flow injection/tandem mass spectrometry to measure insecticides and herbicides at part-per-billion levels in complex matrices, such as food and the environment. The challenges of optimizing quantitative analysis (i.e. accuracy and precision), throughput and sensitivity to meet the objectives of agrochemical research and comply with regulatory guidelines will be highlighted.
