NMR Studies Of Pesticides: An Introduction

  • R. Haque
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 4)


The use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in solving pesticide problems has increased considerably in recent years. There are now two review articles (1,2) available on this subject. Although the sensitivity of this technique is less than that of gas chromatography and mass-spectrometry it offers certain advantages, such as its versatile nature and the ease of interpretation of the spectra. NMR has now successfully been employed in studying the photochemical reaction of pesticides, determining the structure of pesticides, and monitoring the interaction of pesticides with biological polymers and surfaces.
