Method 505: Analysis of Organohalide Pesticides and Commercial PCBs in Water by Microextraction and GC
by Microextraction and Gas Chromatography
With the advent of modern agriculture and its vast selection of chemical pest control measures, the farming community has made significant increases in productivity and efficiency. Crop yield per acre is extremely high, due in part to the role of pesticides and herbicides in mitigating the devastating effects of many plant and insect pests. However, the use of these chemicals can have drawbacks, including surface and ground water contamination. EPA Method 505 is used for organohalide pesticide analysis in drinking and ground water. The Rtx-CLPesticides and Rtx-CLPesticides2 column set works well for the analysis of organohalide compounds because the columns are highly selective for analytes that contain electronegative substituents. The optimized parallel dual-column method shown here provides fast analysis times, which improves sample throughput.
