Abstract

In the analysis of contaminants in food products, sample preparation is performed by proper adsorbents, whose choice is crucial to eliminate matrix interference. In this work we modified SBA-15 adsorbents by functionalization with (3-aminopropyl)-triethoxysilane (SBA-15-APTES) and N-[3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl]aniline (SBA-15-AN) aiming to use them for the first time in the clean-up step of a QuEChERS (quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged and safe) extraction of micropollutants from strawberry, a sugar rich fruit. After physico-chemical characterization by nitrogen adsorption, infrared spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis, the adsorption capabilities of SBA-15 sorbents and possible interaction mechanisms were studied at different pH (2.1-8.5) for glucose, sucrose and fructose at concentrations characteristic of those found in strawberries. The performance of the two SBA-15 sorbents was compared with that of commercial PSA (primary secondary amine), usually proposed in QuEChERS protocols. Both SBA-15 materials exhibit up to 30% higher adsorption than PSA, suggesting their possible QuEChERS application. Synthesized SBA-15 adsorbents were hence used as innovative dispersive sorbents in the QuEChERS extractions of 13 PAHs and 14 PCBs from strawberry. For PCBs, SBA-15-AN provides better matrix removal than PSA and comparable extraction recoveries around 90%. For PAHs, the use of SBA-15-AN has the advantage of lower relative standard deviation (7%) than PSA (19%).
