CHROMATOGRAPHIC DETERMINATION OF PESTICIDES IN FOODS AND FOOD PRODUCTS
The newest results in the chromatographic analysis of pesticides present in foods and food products are collected and the results are
critically evaluated. Examples for the employment of preconcentration and prepurification technologies, gas chromatography using ECD, NPD, MS and MS/MS detection methods, liquid chromatographic methodologies such as thin-layer chromatography, high performance liquid chromatographic methods as well as electrically driven systems are presented. The advantages and disadvantages of the various chromatographic technologies are shortly discussed and the efficacies of the methodologies are compared. Pesticides included in the review are insecticides, herbicides, acaricides, organophosphorous and organochlorine compounds The application of the chromatographic
methods for the determination of pesticides in a wide variety foods and food products is discussed in detail.
