ABSTRACT

This study reports the use ofa natural deep eutectic solvent (NADES) with hollow fiber-microporous membrane liquid-liquid microextraction (HF-MMLLE) for the multiclass determination of 11 compounds classified as emerging contaminantsin water. Different deep eutectic solvents were synthetized and Thymol: Camphor (1:1 molar fraction) wasused as extraction solvent. The Thymol:Camphor was impregnated into the polypropylene membrane porous for 10 min, replacing commonly used solvents (ex. hexane and octanol). The optimized parameters were obtained by multi and univariate models. Extractions were carried out for 50 min using 1.5 mL of water sample at pH 6 and without addition of salt while desorption was made in a mixture of acetone: methanol (3:1, v/v) for 15 min. Separation/quantification was conducted by HPLC with a diode array detection (DAD)and calibration curves were obtained for each analyte. Determination coefficients higher than 0.9906 and limits of detection ranged from 0.3 to 6.1 µg L-1. Intraday precision (n = 3) ranged from 1.6 to 18.4% and inter day from 5.0 to 21.3%. Relative recoveries were performed in tap and stream water and ranged from 64 to 123%.
