Comparison of two different multidimensional liquid–gas chromatography interfaces for determination of mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons in foodstuffs

This investigation focused on direct comparison of two popular multidimensional liquid–gas chromatography (LC–GC) systems, the Y-interface (retention gap approach) and the syringe-based interface (programmed temperature vaporizer approach). Such transfer devices are structurally very different, and could potentially have a substantial effect on the outcome of a specific application. In this work the application was a topic of much current interest, determination of mineral oil saturated hydrocarbon (MOSH) contamination of a series of food products (rice, pasta, icing sugar, olive oil); the final results were then compared. The two LC–GC methods developed were validated for linearity over the calibration range, analyte discrimination, precision, accuracy, and limits of detection and quantification. No significant differences were found between the two approaches. Figure Direct comparison between the Y/LC-GC and the PTV/LC-GC results, on two rice samples
