14th ANNUAL
LC/MS/MS WORKSHOP ON ENVIRONMENTAL APPLICATIONS AND FOOD SAFETY

26-27 June 2018, Barcelona, Spain

Objectives

The main objective of the workshop is to evaluate practical aspects of liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometric techniques applied for screening and quantitation of organic contaminants in the environmental and food samples.

The program will feature a mixed format, with keynote lectures from invited speakers - leaders in the field, along with shorter oral and poster presentations from workshop participants with special consideration for young researchers.

 

The following practical aspects and state of the art applications will be discussed:
  • Advantages, comparison and complementarities of cutting edge tandem and hybrid MS technology in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex environmental and food samples
  • Advanced sample preparation techniques for food and environmental analysis
  • From target analysis, suspect screening to non-target analysis
  • Large number of applications in environmental and food analyses
  • Broad range of contaminants and their degradates
  • Analysis and assessment of risks associated to emerging contaminants, such as nanomaterials (organic and inorganic), perfluoroalkylated substances, personal care products and pharmaceuticals used in human and veterinary medicine including hormones, among others.
