      Multi-enzyme inhibition assay for the detection of insecticidal organophosphates and carbamates by high-performance thin-layer chromatography applied to determine enzyme inhibition factors and residues in juice and water samples
      R. AKKAD, W. SCHWACK* (*Institute of Food Chemistry, University of Hohenheim, Garbenstrasse 28, 70599 Stuttgart, Germany)

      J. Chromatogr. B 878 (17-18), 1337-1345 (2010). Use of rabbit liver esterase, Bacillus subtilis esterase, and cutinase from Fusarium solani pisi for the detection of 21 organophosphorus and carbamate pesticides by HPTLC-enzyme inhibition assays (HPTLC-EI) on silica gel with n-hexane - ethyl acetate - dichloromethane 13:4:3. HPTLC-EI assay of three groups of organophosphate and carbamate insecticides with 1) n-hexane - ethyl acetate 63:37, 2) chloroform - ethyl acetate 9:1, 3) n-hexane - acetone - dichloromethane 15:2:3. Detection by treatment with Fast Blue Salt B and enzymatically coupling to alpha-naphthol released from the respective acetate used as substrate. Quantification by densitometry at 533 nm. Calculation of enzyme inhibition factors derived from HPTLC-EI using linear calibration curves. Comparison to published inhibition constants showed good correlation. The limits of detection ranged from a few pg/zone for organophosphates as strongest inhibitors to a few ng/zone for most carbamates and was around 60 ng/zone for chlorpyrifos and 14 ng/zone for parathion without oxidation. The CUT was able to detect insecticides of high and low inhibitory power in the range of ng to µg/zone. The HPTLC-EI with rabbit liver esterase was applied to the analysis of apple juice and drinking water samples spiked with paraoxon (0.001 mg/L), parathion (0.05 mg/L) and chlorpyrifos (0.5 mg/L). The mean recovery was 71-112 % with standard deviations of 2.0-18.3 %.
