Quantitative Analysis of Phthalates Plasticizers in Traditional Egyptian Foods (Koushary and Foul Medams), Black Tea, Instant Coffee and Bottled Waters by Solid Phase Extraction-Capillary Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy
Abstract: In the present study, method of solid-phase extraction
followed by capillary gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry
(SPE-GC-MS) was used for quantitative analysis of trace levels of phthalates
in the most tow Egyptians traditional food (foul medams and koushary)
and drinks (black tea and instant black coffee) and bottled water samples.Method performance was evaluated in terms of accuracy, linearity,
limits of detection and recovery. Also the practical application of extraction
and analysis method was explained.
