Abstract

Aflatoxins and metabolites of aflatoxins are common natural contaminants of food products such as corn, peanuts, liver, and milk (Rodricks and Stoloff, 1977; Wong and Hsieh, 1978; Stoloff, 1980; Stoloff et al., 1981). Detection of these potently toxic and carcinogenic compounds at the parts-per-billion level or even lower in a variety of complex matrices challenges the analytical chemist to continually improve and expand the repertoire of analytical techniques.
