Residue Analytical Methods For Monocrotophos

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


Since the introduction of monocrotophos approximately 30 years ago, numerous methods for the determination of residues have been developed, most of them in the years before 1970. This review summarizes the methods that either are or were used for the quantitative determination of residues of monocrotophos and its metabolites. Some newer methods that were not published before are described in detail. Most methods that were developed before 1970 are now of historical interest only; they are well covered in the literature and, with a few exceptions, will not be dealt with here.
