CHIARADIA, Mariza C.; COLLINS, Carol H.  and  JARDIM, Isabel C. S. F.. The state of the art of chromatography associated with the tandem mass spectrometry for toxic compound analyses in food. Quím. Nova [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.3, pp.623-636. ISSN 0100-4042.

Chromatography combined with several different detection systems is one of the more used and better performing analytical tools. Chromatography with tandem mass spectrometric detection gives highly selective and sensitive analyses and permits obtaining structural information about the analites and about their molar masses. Due to these characteristics, this analytical technique is very efficient when used to detect substances at trace levels in complex matrices. In this paper we review instrumental and technical aspects of chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and the state of the art of the technique as it is applied to analysis of toxic substances in food.

Keywords : tandem mass spectrometry; chromatography; food.
