  • Provides a concise review of pesticide classes and their physicochemical properties
  • Describes specific analytical methods for measuring pesticides in food, soil, water, and air samples
  • Highlights effective new technologies for monitoring chemical contaminants
  • Addresses regulatory aspects of pesticides in the environment
  • Includes extensive reference data on the levels of pesticides found in actual foods and environmental samples
  • Summary

    Developing safety regulations for pesticides used around the world—in excess of 2.5 million tons annually—requires reliable analytical methods for assessing their impact in food and in the environment. Analysis of Pesticides in Food and Environmental Samples presents the most effective techniques for analyzing pesticide residues and other chemical contaminants in foods as well as in soil, water, and air.

    Renowned Scientists Report New Data and Advances in the Field

    The book introduces sample preparation, extraction, and analytical methods specific to each sample type, including foods from vegetal and animal origin. Other chapters discuss important aspects of quality assurance and the applicability of hyphenated analytical techniques. In addition to a practical chapter on the use of biosensors and immunoassays for monitoring and gathering exposure data, the book addresses regulatory aspects and presents current data on the levels of pesticides found in food and environmental matrices.

    Latest Methods Help Scientists Develop Safer, More Effective Pesticides

    Analysis of Pesticides in Food and Environmental Samples enables scientists to measure and predict the behavior and toxicity of pesticides with a higher degree of accuracy. The methodologies and insight in this timely work will contribute to the development of more effective, less toxic pesticides as well as better safety regulations.
