ANALYTICAL LETTERS, 2019 (SCI İndekslerine Giren Dergi)
A new drying strategy identified as "drying in an oven under a magnetic field" was used for efficient processing of samples. Mycotoxin species and elements (Al, Ba, Co, Cu, Zn, Se, Sr, Mo, Cd, Sn, Pb, Fe, Cr, and Mn) in different foodstuffs (figs, apricots, raisins, hazelnuts, and chilis) were determined using LC-MS/MS and ICP-MS systems at trace levels to evaluate the effectiveness of the new drying method. All of the parameters used in the determination were optimized to obtain efficient determination of analytes. To check the accuracy of the determination methods, proper certified reference materials were used for elemental and mycotoxins contents, and the obtained results were in good agreement with the stated values.
