A low temperature cleanup procedure for triazine herbicides in root crops

Conclusions

Crop extracts of the triazine herbicides, atrazine and simazine, were suitably cleaned up by low temperature precipitation for glc and nitrogen detection. The use of this technique as a multiresidue cleanup method for the glc screening of pesticides may be extended to include these and other similar triazine herbicides. The ec detector was found to be unsuitable for triazine analysis using the low temperature cleanup technique on the crops studied.
