Simultaneous determination of aldrin, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, and p,p'-DDT in medicinal plant extracts using a novel high performance liquid chromatography method
Grice, I. Darren, Salzmann, M., Stiff, I., & Griffiths, Lyn R. (1999) Simultaneous determination of aldrin, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, and p,p'-DDT in medicinal plant extracts using a novel high performance liquid chromatography method. Journal of Liquid Chromatography & Related Technologies, 22(15), pp. 2337-2344.
A high performance liquid chromatographic method for the simultaneous determination of five organochlorine pesticides (aldrin, p,p’-DDT, dieldrin, endrin, and heptachlor) was developed. The method was used to determine the levels of these pesticides in medicinal plant samples. Analysis was carried out using a Merck LiChrospher 100 RP C18 (5 μm) column with a gradient solvent system of acetonitrile-water and PDA UV detection (224 nm). Quantification was carried out by the external standard method. The limit of detection for the utilized method was below the local legal limits (ANZFA) for similar plant materials for all 5 pesticides excepting endrin. Medicinal plant extracts were further analyzed by conventional GC-ECD and GC-NPD means using SPE and GPC cleanup as required.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
