A simple method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of metalaxyl, cyazofamid and the cyazofamid metabolite 4‐chloro‐5‐p‐tolylimidazole‐2‐carbonitrile (CCIM) by liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry. The three target compounds were extracted from tobacco and soil with acetonitrile containing 0.1% acetic acid, and the extracts were purified using octadecylsilane. The proposed method showed satisfactory linearity (R2 ≥ 0.9985) for the target compounds. The limits of detection for metalaxyl, cyazofamid and CCIM were 0.006, 0.06 and 0.06 mg/kg in soil and green tobacco leaves and 0.03, 0.3 and 0.3 mg/kg in cured tobacco leaves, respectively. The limits of quantification for metalaxyl, cyazofamid and CCIM were 0.02, 0.2 and 0.2 mg/kg in soil and green tobacco leaves and 0.1, 1 and 1 mg/kg in cured tobacco leaves, respectively. The average recoveries from soil and tobacco were 72.91–98.40% for metalaxyl, 76.73–105.80% for cyazofamid and 74.48–106.45% for CCIM. The relative standard deviation range was 1.23–6.99%. The developed method was successfully applied to analysis of residues of metalaxyl, cyazofamid and CCIM in real soil and tobacco samples. The results indicated that the established method could meet the requirement for the analysis of trace amounts of all three analytes in soil and tobacco.
