Abstract: A simple direct injection LC-MS/MS method was developed and evaluated for the simultaneous analysis of ultrashort-chain, alternative, and legacy per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in various water samples. This method is recommended for labs wanting to use a single procedure to analyze compounds from all three PFAS categories in potable and non-potable waters.

Abstract: LC-MS/MS analysis of EtG and EtS is challenging due primarily to poor retention and resolution of EtG and EtS from matrix components. This article presents a foundation method that is useful for many samples and also demonstrates effective strategies for improving sensitivity and mitigating matrix effects.

Abstract: Pyrrolizidine alkaloid analysis is time consuming, with a typical run time of 15 minutes, and the acid digestion step can shorten analytical column lifetime. In contrast, this analysis using an acid-resistant Raptor ARC-18 column eluted the final compound in just 3.2 minutes with good peak shape and separation.
