A rapid determination method of three pyrethroid pesticides (cyfluthrin, cypermethrin and fenvalerate) in tea was developed by series two-solid phase extraction-column cleanup and external standard method coupled with gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS) in 30 min. The pesticide residues in tea were extracted with acetonitrile, and cleaned up by Carb/NH2 and SLH solid-phase extraction columns. After filtration, the target compounds were analyzed by GC-MS and quantified by the external standard method. Under the optimized conditions, good linear ranges of 0.05-2.00 mg/kg were obtained. The limits of detection varied from 0.3 to 1.0 μ g/kg. The linear correlation coefficients were greater than 0.999. At three spiked levels (0.10, 0.50 and 2.00 mg/L), the average recoveries were determined between 80.6% and 116.3% in the four matrices. The inter-day relative standard deviations were between 1.3%-12.6%, and the intra-day relative standard deviations were between 2.7% and 12.1%. This method is simple, fast, and has a good reproducibility, which can meet the requirements of the rapid detection of pyrethroid pesticides in tea.
