Trends and advances in pesticide residue analysis

P. O. Yeboah

Abstract


The nature, origin and the economic significance of pesticide residues are reviewed to underscore the need for countries to develop the ability and capacity to monitor pesticide residues. An overview of pesticide residues analytical procedures is also presented with emphasis on thin layer chromatography (TLC) as an important tool for analysis. Where limited budget does not permit the use of more expensive and sophisticated equipment, su-ch as gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography, TLC is recommended for use.
