A method was developed for the determination of paraquat (PQ) and diquat (DQ) in high moisture food crops. Samples were digested with 6M HCl, and the herbicides were isolated from the digest using pH-controlled silica solid phase extraction. The analytes were then determined by ion-pairing liquid chromatography with a silica analytical column, sodium(More)
A rapid assay was developed for diethylpropion hydrochloride tablets using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with UV detection. This technique provided separation of the drug from other UV-absorbing components present as the result of decomposition. A major decomposition product detected by HPLC in extracts of tablets and of the cotton filler(More)
The applicability of the Tracor Model 965 photoconductivity detector to the determination of a variety of pesticide chemicals, particularly polar and/or thermally labile compounds which are troublesome in gas chromatographic analysis, has been investigated. The effects of various operating parameters (e.g., mobile phase composition, flow-rate and(More)
A rapid, reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatographic method is described for the determination of chlorthalidone and clonidine hydrochloride combinations in tablets. Individual tablets or composite samples were sonicated in water, diluted with methanol, and filtered prior to chromatographing. Chlorthalidone, formulated at 15 mg/tablet, was(More)
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)
Results of pesticide and industrial chemical residue determinations, using both capillary and packed column gas chromatography (GC), in 3 Food and Drug Administration (FDA) laboratories have been compiled and compared. Samples consisted of food products collected for routine residue screening by the respective laboratories. Extracts were prepared by(More)
Nine laboratories analyzed samples of whole grain, intermediate, and ready-to-eat products for ethylene dibromide (EDB) residues. Supplied samples of wheat, rice, and flour contained both fortified and incurred EDB; corn bread mix, baby cereal, and bread contained only fortified EDB. The whole grains and intermediates were analyzed by the same basic(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)
JOHN SCOTT LENNOX GILMOUR, who died in Cambridge on the 3rd June 1986 aged 79, was Director of the University Botanic Garden from 1951 to 1973, and Fellow of Clare College from 1951. Born in London on 28th September 1906, he was educated at Uppingham, and proceeded to Clare College in 1925, already an enthusiastic field botanist. JOHN himself describes his(More)
