METHOD FOR CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN FOOD
Swedish Ethyl acetate Method (SweEt); SweEt
The Swedish ethyl acetate method (SweEt) is a method for chemical analysis of pesticide residues in food using ethyl acetate as an extraction medium followed by analysis with liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS). It was developed by the Swedish National Food Agency (National Reference Laboratory for pesticide analysis) for quantitative analysis of over 500 pesticides in fruits, vegetables, cereals and products of animal origin.

Ethyl acetate

Ethyl acetate (systematically ethyl ethanoate, commonly abbreviated EtOAc, ETAC or EA) is the organic compound with the formula CH3CO2CH2CH3, simplified to C4H8O2. This colorless liquid has a characteristic sweet smell (similar to pear drops) and is used in glues, nail polish removers, and in the decaffeination process of tea and coffee. Ethyl acetate is the ester of ethanol and acetic acid; it is manufactured on a large scale for use as a solvent.

Examples of use of ethyl acetate
1. The chemicals were identified as ethyl acetate, a solvent used in nail polish remover, and toluene, used in paint and gasoline.
