[A semiempirical mathematical model for assessment of PH3 residues as exemplified by phosphine-fumigated hazelnuts].

Abstract

A mathematical model for the calculation of residues of PH3 in fumigated hazelnuts in dependence on dosage, fumigation- and storage time is discussed. The model is based on the physical process of the diffusion of a gas out of a sphere. An empirical dependence of the diffusion coefficient on the residue levels can be observed. Adequate agreement is obtained between calculated and experimental values.
