Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


Membrane-based extraction procedures of food sample treatment are eco-friendly methods suitable to fully automate analytical process for routine monitoring of food safety. On-line connection is quick and easy and does not require significant adaptation of the procedure. The flexibility of the working arrangements makes these procedures conformable to most experimental approaches. Membrane-based extraction techniques are cheap, low hazard, safe, and give rapid separations that provide the highest selectivity and cleanup; they are also joined to high enrichment factors, of both inorganic and organic target analytes from complex nonhomogeneous hydrophilic or hydrophobic matrices. Thermally unstable components too are easily separated, due to no heating requirement. © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
