Title CHLORINATED HERBICIDES BY GC USING METHYLATION ORPENTAFLUOROBENZYLATION DERIVATIZATION:CAPILLARY COLUMN TECHNIQUE
Abstract Water samples are extracted with diethyl ether and then esterified with either diazomethane or pentafluorobenzyl bromide. Soil and waste samples are extracted and esterified with either diazomethane or penttafluorobenzyl bromide. The derivatives are then analyzed by GC/ECD (gas chromatograph with electron capture detector).
