Part of the Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology book series (RECT, volume 63)


There have been a number of recent reviews on the mass spectra of pesticides, including organophosphorus (OP) esters (Biros 1971 a and b, Wacks and Laurie 1971, Garrison et al. 1972, Gillis and Occolowitz 1972, Müller and Korte 1972). The mass spectra of biological esters, including OP esters, have also been extensively reviewed (Hanessian 1971, Milne 1971, Gouw 1972, Santoro 1972, Waller 1972); however, no comprehensive review on OP esters that are added to the environment and their alteration products has been published in which emphasis is placed on structure identification. With increasingly routine use of mass spectrometry and especially gas-liquid chromatography—mass spectrometry (GLC-MS) in pesticide residue and metabolite analysis, a wide variety of investigators find it necessary to interpret the mass spectra of OP compounds. It is mainly for this audience of nonspecialists in mass spectrometry that this review is designed.
