Two improved methods for the determination of dinocap in fruits and vegetables

Authors


Abstract

Gas chromatographic and spectrophotometric methods are described for the determination of dinocap extracted from apples, strawberries and cucumbers with organic solvents. The spectrophotometric method is based on the rapid hydrolysis of dinocap by means of ethanolamine. Qualitative confirmation of the presence of dinocap is performed by thin-layer chromatography.
