Extraction of Metaldehyde, Geosmin and 2-Methylisoborneol from Water
Kinesis has published a new Application Note: Extraction of Metaldehyde, Geosmin and 2-Methylisoborneol from Water
The latest TELOS® SPE Application Note from Kinesis highlights the extraction of Metaldehyde, Geosmin and 2-Methylisoborneol from Water.
Metaldehyde is a molluscicide whose use has markedly increased in recent years as a result of changing agricultural practices. Geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) are naturally occurring alicyclic alcohols which possess potent earthy/musty taste and odour tainting properties. They can occur in raw and potable waters as metabolites derived from various micro-organisms.
The solid phase extraction method uses TELOS ENV SPE Columns, a polystyrene divinylbenzene-based product, optimised for polar, water soluble analytes from water.
The application note shows recovery data for four water types, raw surface, treated surface, treated ground and ultra pure water.
