A rapid on-line solid phase extraction/liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (SPE/LC/MS/MS) method usingrestricted access material (RAM) was developed for the simultaneous determination of eight organophosphorus triesters inuntreated human blood plasma. In a process involving column-switching techniques, the analytes were enriched on the RAMcolumn, separated using a C-18 analytical column and detected with LC/MS. Tandem mass spectrometrywas used to characterizeand quantify the analytes. To elucidate the fragmentation pathway of a number of the analytes, MS3 experiments using an iontrap mass spectrometer were performed. The matrix effects associated with using APCI and ESI interfaces were investigated.The recoveries obtained were in the range 60–92% (R.S.D. < 6%), with estimated detection limits between 0.2 and 1.8 ng/mlof plasma, and the total analysis time was 27 min.
