A method for determination of tricyclazole in water using solid phase extraction and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with UV detection at 230nm and a mobile phase of acetonitrile:water (20:80, v/v) was developed. A performance comparison between two types of solid phase sorbents, the C18 sorbent of Supelclean ENVI-18 cartridge and the styrene-divinyl benzene copolymer sorbent of Sep-Pak PS2-Plus cartridge was conducted. The Sep-Pak PS2-Plus cartridges were found more suitable for extracting tricyclazole from water samples than the Supelclean ENVI-18 cartridges. For this cartridge, both methanol and ethyl acetate produced good results. The method was validated with good linearity and with a limit of detection of 0.008gL-1 for a 500-fold concentration through the SPE procedure. The recoveries of the method were stable at 80% and the precision was from 1.1-6.0% within the range of fortified concentrations. The validated method was also applied to measure the concentrations of tricyclazole in real paddy water.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
