Abstract: A gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (GC-MS/MS) method has been developed for simultaneous determination of 7 herbicide residues in tea by accelerated solvent extraction (ASE) and gel permeation chromatography (GPC) cleaned up. The target analytes were extracted with acetonitrile using ASE,eluted with ethyl acetate/cyclohexane (1:1), cleaned up by GPC. The detection of the target analytes was used GC-MS/MS with multi-reaction-monitor (MRM) mode. At the spiked levels of 0.010μg/g and 0.100μg/g, the average recoveries were from 78.2% to 93.6%, and the relative standard deviations (RSDs) were from 5.8% to 19.1% (n=5). The limits of detection were 2.0~8.0ng/g. The method was simple, automated, reliable, accurate, sensitive and appropriate for the determination of 7 herbicide residues in tea.

Key words: tea, herbicide residue, gas chromatography-tandem mass
