Residue dynamics of thiacloprid in cabbage and soil was studied in this paper utilizing liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS). The field trial was conducted in two sites: Beijing, China and Hubei, China. Thiacloprid dissipated rapidly with the half-life 1.3–1.6 days in cabbage and 2.1–3.1 days in soil. In the terminal residue experiment, no higher residue than 0.06 mg/kg in cabbage and 0.16 mg/kg in soil was detected, which was far below either EU MRL (0.2 mg/kg) or Japan MRL (1 mg/kg).
