A simple, sensitive and reproducible high-performance liquid chromatographic method was developed for determining dimethomorph and gibberellin A3 residues in fruit and vegetable samples (strawberry, watermelon and tomatoes). The samples were extracted with ethyl acetate under acid conditions (pH 2.5), cleaned up by florisil solid-phase extraction cartridge, and analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection. There were good linear correlations between the peak area and the corresponding concentration of dimethomorph and gibberellin A3 in the range of 0.025-1.00 μg/mL and the correlation coefficient was above 0.9995. The average recovery of dimethomorph and gibberellin A3 in three levels (0.025, 0.050 and 0.100 mg/kg) was between 81.2 and 91.3. The limit of detection of the dimethomorph and gibberellin A3 was 0.01 mg/kg and 0.02 mg/kg, respectively.

Key words: dimethomorph, gibberellin A3, HPLC, vegetable, fruit
