Abstract
A simple, sensitive, cost-effective and solvent less/eco-friendly Solid Phase Micro Extraction (SPME) method coupled to Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) is proposed for the first time for the trace level simultaneous determination of ten volatile polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in chocolate samples. Influence of time and temperature of extraction, stirring speed and salt addition on extraction efficiency of PAHs were thoroughly investigated in the present study. The sensitivity of the optimised method were proved by obtaining detection (LOD) and quantification limits (LOQ) up to ng Kg -1 level (LOD; 0.6�9.6 ng Kg -1 , LOQ; 2.0�31.0 ng Kg -1 ), by considering signal to noise ratio of 3 and 10 correspondingly. For method accuracy, recovery study was conducted by spiking the chocolate sample at two concentration levels. The average recovery percentage was found to be varying between 90 to 103%. Additionally, to check the applicability, the proposed method has been applied to the real chocolate samples for the determination of volatile PAHs. Overall, the developed headspace SPME method coupled to GC- MS in selected ion monitoring (SIM) mode is easy, sensitive and successfully applicable to explore the level of PAH contamination in chocolate samples and their related products.
