Abstract: In this study, an ID-LC-MS method was developed and validated for the determination of 14 sulfonamides in milk samples. Recovery results were found to be in the range of 91%-114% for milk samples. The relative measurement uncertainty was between 7.5%- 12.7%. Validated method was performed on milk samples obtained from market and street vendors. The amount of sulfonamides in the analyzed samples was found to be below the legal limits (Sulfamethazine: 6.46±0.76 ng/g and sulfisoxazole: 7.3±0.71 ng/g).
