A new, rapid and sensitive method is reported for the multiresidual determination of type A (diacetoxyscirpenol, HT-2 toxin, T-2 toxin) and type B (nivalenol, deoxynivalenol, fusarenon X, 15-O-acetyl-4-deoxynivalenol) trichothecenes in wheat flour samples. Sample extraction was performed with acetonitrile/water mixtures. Mycosep© columns were used for a fast and effective clean-up procedure. The analytes were separated by HPLC with a RP C18 column by means of a gradient elution and detected in an ESI-interfaced single quadrupole mass spectrometer. Type B and type A trichothecenes were monitored in the negative and in the positive ion mode, respectively. The method performance is reported in terms of linearity (r 2 = 0.999), specificity, accuracy (recoveries from 70–120%) and precision (CV% = 5), the LOQs are in the range 10–20 μg/Kg.
