Title ANALYSIS OF CERTAIN ORGANOCHLORINE PESTICIDES INWASTEWATER BY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY
Abstract Organochlorine pesticides are removed from the sample matrix by extraction with methylene chloride. The extract is dried, exchanged into hexane, and analyzed by gas chromatography. Column chromatography is used as necessary to eliminate interferences -which may be encountered. Measurement of the pesticides is accomplished with an electron capture detector.
