Series: Food Analysis & Properties
Pesticide residues can persist for some time and can be harmful to human health, wildlife and the global environment. Determination of such residues helps to keep the production sustainability and to design policies to protect endangered ecosystems. This book presents the key features of pesticide residues analysis in food matrices. It provides both theoretical and practical, updated information on instrumental advances and their applications as well as the main trends in sample preparations protocols employed in MRM pesticide residue analysis.
