Title

Interference by plastics additives in the HPLC determination of microcystin-LR and -YR

Abstract

Plastics devices used for the field collection of water samples may contain plastics additives which will interfere with the HPLC determination of the cyanobacterial toxins microcystins. The presence of the additives resorcinol monobenzoate or 2,4-dihydroxybenzophenone can interfere with the determination of microcystin-LR. The presence of bisphenol A in plastics can interfere with the determination of microcystin-YR.
