The Use of Thermal Evolution Analysis (TEA) for the Determination of Vapor Pressure of Agricultural Chemicals
The title of this paper is listed as “The Use Of Thermal Evolution Analysis for the Determination of Vapor Pressures of Agricultural Chemicals ”. The phrase “agricultural chemicals” includes an extremely broad range of chemicals including insect repellents and att-ractants, herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, and many other products. Such a broad field would be extremely difficult to cover in the space of this paper and so I will, of necessity, limit my remarks to one, much smaller area, that of insect repellents. The techniques used in this study are perfectly general, however, and I leave it to the imagination of the reader to extend this work to the general case.
