Summary The paper described a simplified method for the separation, identification and determination of zearalenone by liquid chromatography in cereals. The cereal medium is dried, homogenised and extracted with ether. From the ether extract zearalenone is transferred into ethyl acetate, whereafter the sample is analysed using an external standard. The detection limit of the method is 500 μg/kg. Recoveries of zearalenone varied from 94.5% to 96.2%. The conditions of the liquid chromatography are described.
