Abstract : Trichothecene toxins were isolated from dilute aqueous solutions (1-4 mg/L) by adsorption on solid phase extraction (SPE) columns followed by elution with methanol. After thin layer chromatographic (TLC) separation, quantitative determinations were made by a spectrodensitometric method specific for trichothecenes. The extraction/quantitation procedure worked equally well for the relatively non-polar toxin, T-2, and the most polar trichothecene, T-2 tetraol. Recoveries were 95-100 percent for T-2 and 80-95 percent for tetraol. Originator-supplied keywords include: Densitometry, Field water and sanitation, Quantitative analysis, T-2 Tetraol, T-2 Toxin, and Trichothecenes.
