Analytical Methods for Pesticides and Plant Growth Regulators, Volume XVII: Advanced Analytical Techniques covers analytical techniques of great importance to the pesticide analyst. The book discusses sampling techniques, universal extraction, cleanup methods, and cleanup by sweep co-distillation. The text also describes determinations by GC/FT-IR and GC/MS, computer evaluation of GC data, and immunoassay techniques for pesticide analysis. Toxicologists and people involved in pesticide analysis will find the book invaluable.
