Glyphosate and Glufosinate are phytosanitary products widely used as weed killers, especially in cereal and vegetable crops. This study presents a new analytical approach allowing their quantification and separation on reverse phase thanks to in-vial -addition of a pairing agent. This new strategy provides a method that allows to achieve good retention, separation, and sensibility. A rapid method is set up with 7 min run and easy sample preparation. This sensitivity allows their quantification below 50 µg/kg for fruits and 100 µg/kg whatever the matrix. This method shows good repeatability, yield extraction, and robustness.

The Analytical solution seminar was held at Sarova Panafric Hotel, Nairobi Kenya. The aim of the seminar was to create awareness of the LabSolutionsCS_with_Vids (Data Integrity) & more knowledge of the Shimadzu equipment, demos and practical illustrations on Data Integrity. The turn out for the seminar showed a very strong presence in the Region.
Chuka University 6th International Research Conference held in Chuka University – The Conference theme was: “Leveraging Entrepreneurial Research and Education for Sustainable Development (LERESD)”. The research conference and exhibition was in line with contemporary times that require turning research and education milestones into enterprises for solving recalcitrant societal problems for healthy, secure and wealthy livelihoods creation. As ESTEC Team we had a very successful exhibition and we are very proud to be a part of this great quest by providing quality equipment for analysis and research.
