Comprehensive Analytical Profiles of Important Pesticides provides detailed information on the properties and analytical methodology for nine prominent pesticides, including one insecticide, two fungicides, five herbicides, and one plant growth regulator. An analysis of various fumigants in foods is also provided.
An overview for each pesticide covers formulation and uses; chemical and physical properties; analytical methods and toxicological data; fish and wildlife toxicity studies; and tolerances on various foods and feeds. General properties including toxicity data, procedures and ramifications for formulation analysis, low level residue analysis, and modifications and occurrences are listed for each compound. Experimental details of procedures are reviewed together with a critical evaluation leading to a recommended procedure. The wealth of information found in Comprehensive Analytical Profiles of Important Pesticides makes it an essential reference volume for analytical chemists, laboratory managers, environmental chemists, residue chemists, toxicologists, and other professionals who require access to concise reports illustrating the latest successful approaches to analyzing these important pesticides.
