An analytical method of gas chromatography coupled with negative ion chemical ionization-mass spectrometry for simultaneous determination of nine organophosphorus pesticide residues in vegetables and fruit has been developed, and the negative ions structure and partition mechanism of the nine organophosphorus pesticides were interpreted. Meanwhile, the matrix effect for sample analysis was discussed, and matrix-matched calibration for quantification was introduced to reduce the matrix effect in this method. Pesticides were extracted from sample with ethyl acetate in an ultrasonic bath, then determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry operated in negative chemical ionization mode and quantified in selective ion monitoring mode, and ethion was used as an internal standard. The detection limits of the method were 0.12-1.0 microg/kg for the nine organophosphorus pesticides, and the relative coefficients were higher than 0.9993. A blank sample (tomato) was spiked at 100, 400, 800 microg/kg for each pesticide, and the recoveries were determined to be from 78% to 126% with relative standard deviations from 0.58% to 14.7% for the pesticides.
