- As part of a new generation of diamide insecticides, cyantraniliprole has broad application prospects. In the present study, a QuEChERS-UPLC-MS/MS method was established to determine the residues of cyantraniliprole and its main metabolite J9Z38 in soil and earthworms. Moreover, the accumulation and toxicity of cyantraniliprole and J9Z38 in earthworms were evaluated. The present results show that the detection method of cyantraniliprole and J9Z38 has high sensitivity and accuracy, which could be used for the accurate quantification of cyantraniliprole and J9Z38 residues in soil and earthworms. Additionally, cyantraniliprole degraded faster than its main metabolite J9Z38 in the artificial soil. Moreover, the bioenrichment efficiency of cyantraniliprole was higher than J9Z38. The toxicity test result showed that cyantraniliprole and J9Z38 could induce oxidative stress effect in earthworms from 5.0 mg/kg, finally resulting in cellular damage. Moreover, the oxidative damage degree induced by cyantraniliprole was higher than J9Z38. Combining the results of residue test and toxicity test, although cyantraniliprole degraded faster than its main metabolite J9Z38 in the artificial soil, its risk to earthworms was higher than J9Z38.
