The gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) deconvolution reporting software (DRS) from Agilent Technologies has been evaluated for its ability as a screening tool to detect a large number of pesticides in incurred and fortified samples extracted with acetone/dichloromethane/light petroleum (Mini-Luke method). The detection of pesticides is based on(More)
A method for the determination of residues of the insecticide diflubenzuron, 1-(4-chlorophenyl)-3-(2,6-difluorobenzoyl)urea, in apples using gas chromatography with electron-capture detection has been developed and validated. The three solvents ethyl acetate, acetone and dichloromethane were tested for extraction of diflubenzuron residues from apples.(More)
