The use of small scale renewable sorbent material for automated solid phase extraction of multi-residue pharmaceuticals in environmental samples exploiting the sequential injection analysis-bead injection with direct coupling to liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (SIA-BI-μSPE-LC-ESI-MS/MS) is presented to determine beta-blockers, namely atenolol, sotalol, pindolol, acebutolol, timolol, metoprolol, labetalol, carazolol, propranolol and betaxolol. These compounds yielded the same product ions, therefore were affected in terms of quantification when flow injection analysis-mass spectrometry (FIA-MS) was used. Thus, analytes and matrix present in the sample travel together into the ionization source which can seriously affect the ionization efficiency and analyte signals due to monitoring over a short time period.
