Abstract: . An evaluation of the pesticides extraction from onion using a modern sample preparation method (QuEChERS) and determination by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry was carried out. All the calibration curves showed r>0.99. The recoveries ranged between 61.8 and 120.0% with relative standard deviation lower than 20% for all compounds. Due to the occurrence of matrix effect, the quantification was performed using matrix-matched calibration. The limits of quantification of the method were between 0.0…
