Abstract: A monolithic, hydrophilic stir bar coating based upon a copolymer of methacrylic acid and divinylbenzene [poly(MAA-co-DVB)] was synthesised and evaluated as a new polymeric phase for the stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) of polar compounds from complex environmental water samples. The experimental conditions for the extraction and liquid desorption in SBSE were optimised. Liquid chromatography-triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) was used for the determination of a group of polar pharmaceuticals in…
