QuEChERS Extraction:
A 2 g sample of tobacco was weighed into a 50 mL polypropylene centrifuge tube (cat.# 26239). After the addition of 10 mL of organic-free water to the sample, 100 µL of QuEChERS internal standard mix for GC-MS analysis (cat.# 33267) was added to each sample. Next, 10 mL of acetonitrile was added and the samples were vortexed for 30 min. Immediately after vortexing, pre-packaged QuEChERS European EN 15662 method formulation extraction salts (cat.# 26236) were added to each centrifuge tube. The tubes were immediately shaken for 1 min and then centrifuged for 5 min at 3,000 g.

Sample Cleanup:
A 1 mL aliquot of the extract was fortified with 5 µL of an anthracene standard (cat.# 33264) and added to a dSPE tube containing 150 mg MgSO4, 25 mg PSA and 7.5 mg GCB (cat.# 26218). The tubes were gently shaken for 2 min and then centrifuged for 5 min using a Q-sep™ 3000 centrifuge (cat.# 26230). A 0.5 mL portion of the supernatant extract was removed and placed into an autosampler vial and 5 µL of a 5% formic acid solution in acetonitrile was added to each sample prior to analysis.
