Determination of a metabolite of the herbicide pyridate in drinking and groundwater using high-performance liquid chromatography with amperometric detection.


The main metabolite of the herbicide pyridate is 3-phenyl-4-hydroxy-6-chlorpyridazine (CL9673). A high-performance liquid chromatographic method with amperometric detection is described for determining CL9673 at residue levels in water samples. Sample preconcentration is performed by passage through a C18 extraction cartridge. A recovery study using tap… (More)
