HPLC Separation of Agricultural Compounds Found in Tea

 

Tea has been known to contain residue of pesticides and fungicides such as picoxystrobin and pyrimethanil. We used Primesep 200, a reversed-phase column with weakly acidic ion-pairing groups to separate picoxystrobin, pyrimethanil and atorvastatin. A 15 minute method used to demonstrate retention control when adjusting ratio of organic to aqueous in the mobile phase. Baseline retention with good resolution was achieved.
