The uses of herbicides increased during the last decades. Because acid herbicides can be identified in environmental samples, specific analytical methods are required. In this work a new GC-MS/MS method was developed in order to detect some pyridinecarboxylic acids (clopyralid, triclopyr and fluroxypyr) and a methoxybenzoic acid (dicamba) from environmental water samples. Because these polar analytes involve a derivatization step, a Programmed Temperature Vaporizing injector (PTV) was used to shape the derivatization conditions and to minimize the working time. This process is called in port derivatization (IPD), a relative new technique which encourages greener practices in analytical laboratory. MtBSTFA was chosen to be the most suitable silylation agent due to generation of specific derivatized analyte structures, which can be further fragmented in the EI ionization source to produce specific ions for the targeted analytes, easily detectable with high sensitivity.Few studies analyzed the derivatization of above-mentioned herbicides with MtBSTFA, while no other paper work was identified in studying the in port derivatization of these compounds. The results revealed that the developed method is sensitive and robust to obtain quantitation limits below 10 ng/L.
