OVERVIEW

In this webinar we will present some examples of how the analytical profiling of crop protection chemicals can be made more comprehensive with the addition of mass detection to varied separation techniques. Chiral and achiral separations of the pesticide active ingredients are shown using UltraPerformance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC®) and UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography (UPC) using both UV and mass detection.

UPC2 applies the performance advantages of UPLC to SFC, combining the use of supercritical CO2 with sub-2-μm particle columns. UPC2 is an orthogonal analytical technique to reversed- phase LC and can be used to solve complex separations challenges. Waters® ACQUITY QDa® Detector is a novel mass detector that can be integrated into existing liquid chromatography configurations in order to increase sensitivity and complement the results obtained when using only UV detectors. When the mass detector data is combined with the UV response, it allows the analyst to determine a wider range of analytes in one analytical run with an increased level of confidence.

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

- How the addition of mass detection as a complementary analytical detection technique enhances confidence in compound detection and identification in a formulation matrix.

- The benefits of using a single chromatographic system for chiral and achiral profiling of pesticide formulations.

- Examples of the chiral pesticide resolutions will be discussed.
