Analytical Methods for Monocrotophos in Formulations

  • Martin Rodler
Part of the Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology book series (RECT, volume 139)


Monocrotophos in formulations may be identified using gas chromatography (GC) or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) (see below) by comparing its retention time with that of a monocrotophos reference standard. In ambiguous cases, the use of two dissimilar columns or specific detectors (e.g., a nitrogen-phosphorus detector for GC) may be necessary.
