Title ANALYSIS OF DINITRO AROMATIC PESTICIDES IN WASTEWATER BY GASCHROMATOGRAPHY
Abstract Dinitroaromatic pesticides are removed from the sample matrix by extraction with methylene chloride in hexane. The extract is dried, exchanged into hexane, and analyzed by gas chromatography (GC). Column chromatography is used as necessary to eliminate interferences which may be encountered. Measurement of the pesticides is accomplished with an electron capture detector.
