    Abstract

    A validated method has been developed for the analysis of 90 pesticides in dried red chili powder using the QuEChERS sample preparation technique and the Agilent 7000 GC-Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, with a run time of 20.75 minutes

    Analysis of pesticide residues in red chili powder is a real analytical challenge due to its complex matrix and required maximum residue levels (MRL). Sample preparation was optimized in order to eliminate pigment and other coextractives which could cause retention time shifting, affect chromatographic peak shape and cause loss of sensitivity of the target analytes.
