Project Description

The control of residues in food is a priority of public policy programs to guarantee the food security of the population, since the foods are among the main vehicles of toxic elements with risk of damage to health; with emphasis on agrochemicals. This research project aims to optimize methods employing Solid Phase Matrix Dispersion (MSPD), QuEChERS, and chromatographic techniques coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS and LC-MS/MS) for the simultaneous determination of multiclasses of agrochemicals in fruits and vegetables produced in the city of Rio Grande-RS. The proposal represents an advance in the areas of Analytical Chemistry and Food Sciences, since studies that investigate the occurrence of agrochemicals in the southern region of the state are incipient. In addition, the study of the techniques will be to make them faster, cheaper, using less toxic solvents and using alternative solid supports from renewable sources. After establishing the methods, these will be applied in the monitoring of the studied matrices, tracing a diagnosis of the quality of the food produced in the region regarding residues of agrochemicals.
