A rapid, specific, and sensitive method based on modified quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe (QuEChERS) coupled to gas chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS) was developed and validated for simultaneous determination of chlorpyrifos (CP) and its metabolite 3,5,6-trichloro-2- pyridinol (TCP) in duck muscle. The residues of CP and TCP were extracted by acidified acetonitrile. The fat layer of the extract was removed under-20 °C, then the organic layer was evaporated. The analytes were derivatized by N-(tert-butyldimethylsilyl)-Nmethyltrifluoroacetamide (MTBSTFA) and cleaned up by a mixture of 150 mg MgSO4, 25 mg graphitized carbon black (GCB), and 50mg N-propylethylenediamine (PSA) to remove interference. The final extract was analyzed by GC-MS/MS. Recovery values at the spiking concentrations ranged from 86.2 to 92.3 % for CP and from 74.8 to 81.8 % for TCP, with relative standard deviations (RSDs) lower than 9.5 and 12.3, respectively. The correlation coefficients of CP (from 2 to 2,000 μg/kg) and TCP (from 1 to 1,000 μg/kg) were equal to or higher than 0.998. The limits of detection (LODs) were 0.3 and 0.15 μg/kg, and the limits of quantification (LOQs) were 1.0 and 0.5 μg/kg for CP and TCP in duck muscle, respectively. The average intra- and inter-day accuracy ranged from 84.6 to 91.2 % for CP and 75.6 to 82.3 % for TCP, and the intra- and inter-day precisions were from 5.8 to 8.2 % for CP and 6.5 to 11.9 % for TCP. Furthermore, the CP and TCP residues in duck muscle samples were detected for dietary risk assessment using the validated method. Source
