A method for the simultaneous determination of arsenobetaine, arsenite, arsenate, dimethylarsinic acid, monomethylarsonic acid, selenite, selenate, bromate, bromide, iodate, and iodide in bottled drinking water and fruit juice samples was established by using high-performance liquid chromatography–inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. The separation of eleven compounds was performed on an ion exchange chromatography column (Dionex IonPac AS14) with 20 mmol L−1 (NH4)2CO3 (pH 10) and 50 mmol L−1 (NH4)2CO3 (pH 10) as a mobile phase. The limits of quantification of the method were 0.17 – 1.2 μg L−1 for the test compounds in bottled drinking water and 0.34 – 2.4 μg L−1 in fruit juice. The average recoveries ranged from 85.8 to 102.2%, and the relative standard deviations (RSDs) obtained in fortification recovery studies were generally <4.2% for bottled drinking water samples. The average recoveries ranged from 88.1 to 118.0% (except for iodate) for fruit juice sample.
