Title The determination of atmospheric concentrations of the active ingredients of pesticide formulations by high-performance liquid chromatography
Bibliographic information 1982, Vol.16, p.290-293. Illus. 9 ref.
Abstract Methods of sampling atmospheres contaminated by pesticides in factory and agricultural environments, and subsequent analysis by high-performance liquid chromatography, are discussed. Air sampling is carried out using porous polymer or filter collection media; usually a 100dm3 air volume is suitable. Detection limits with UV detection are in the range 0.1-10µg/m3. The methods described are used routinely at the Health and Safety Executive Occupational Medicine and Hygiene Laboratories (United Kingdom).
