Gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is the preferred technique for pesticide residue analysis. Nevertheless, there are significant advantages to employing a selective GC detector in tandem with a MS detector. Extracts of food and environmental samples frequently contain complex mixtures of organic components that were co-extracted along with pesticide residues. These co-extracted matrix interferences can make identification and confirmation of pesticide residues difficult. Selective detectors such as the PFPD and XSD facilitate pesticide identification when used in conjunction with a mass spectrometer.
