Confirmation method for the identification and determination of some organophosphorus and organochlorine pesticides in cocoa beans by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.

The main objective of this work is to develop a routine quality control method for pesticide residues in cocoa beans, using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The investigated pesticides, which are used to control pests in the growing of cacao, are: Acephate, Propoxur, HCH, Heptachlor, Fenitrothion, Pirimiphos-methyl, Aldrin, Dieldrin, pp'-DDE, op-DDE and DDT. Two extraction methods were tested. The first was based on strong attack by concentrated sulphuric acid and later extraction with n-hexane: the investigated residues were Acephate, HCH, Fenitrothion and DDT; recoveries were 68-95% and the detection limits 0.5-10 ppb. The second extraction method was based on the Universal Trace Residue Extractor (UNITREX), which consists of a distillation system for organophosphorus and organochlorine pesticides in fatty samples. The investigated residues were Heptachlor, Pirimiphos-methyl, Aldrin, Propoxur, Dieldrin, op-DDE and pp'-DDE; recoveries were 67-88% and the detection limits 1-10 ppb.[1]
