Diatomaceous earth columns used with reversed and normal solid phase extraction (SPE) cartridges were evaluated for the quantitative determination of a number of organophosphorus (OP) and organochlorine (OC) pesticide residues in edible vegetable oils and butterfat. An oil or fat sample (about 2 g) in hexane was passed through a diatomaceous earth (Extrelut(More)
Two multiresidue methods, the Mills method and the Luke et al. method, are widely used for the determination of pesticides in foods. These methods were evaluated for the determination of the fungicides captan, folpet, and captafol in selected fruits and vegetables. The analytical behavior of standards through these methods was investigated first. Recoveries(More)
A method is described for determining residues in foods of thiabendazole, thiophanate methyl, the di-oxygen analogue metabolite [dimethyl 4,4'-O-phenylene bis (allophanate)] that is the metabolite name of the latter, and methyl-2-benzimidazole carbamate, which is the major metabolite and fungitoxic principle common to both thiophanate methyl and benomyl.(More)
A sample cleanup method was developed for the determination of paraquat (PQ) and diquat (DQ) in low-moisture food crops. Low-moisture commodities, such as milled dry navy beans, are digested in acid. PQ and DQ are isolated from the digestates by using a 4 g column of preconditioned silica gel. The analytes are concentrated and then determined by liquid(More)
An interlaboratory study of the determination of captan, folpet, and captafol in tomatoes, cucumbers, and apples was conducted by 4 laboratories using wide-bore capillary column gas chromatography with electron capture detection. The 3 fungicides were determined using the Luke et al. multiresidue method modified to include additional solvent elution in the(More)
Fresh strawberries and grapes grown in Michigan and Indiana were surveyed for residues of captan and folpet, 2 fungicides commonly used on these crops. The fungicides were reportedly applied to the crops by overhead irrigation, tractor sprayer, or aerial spraying, in amounts ranging from 0.5 to 6 lb formulation/acre for captan and from 1 to 4 lb(More)
High-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) separations of eighteen phenylurea pesticides were investigated using both reversed-phase and normal-phase systems. A photoconductivity detector, which responds selectively to ionic products formed via postcolumn UV irradiation of photolabile analytes, was connected in tandem with a UV detector permitting(More)
