Determination of organophosphorus pesticides in th

  • Detail

Water quality determination of organophosphorus pesticides nbsp; This standard is applicable to the determination of medium base parathion, parathion, malathion, dimethoate, dichlorvos and trichlorfon in surface water, groundwater and industrial wastewater

in this method, the above pesticides in water are extracted with chloroform and determined by gas chromatography with flame photometric detector. When determining trichlorfon. Due to its high polarity and strong water solubility, the extraction rate is zero when extracted with chloroform, so the indirect determination method of converting trichlorfon into dichlorvos is adopted

the detection limit of methyl parathion, parathion, malathion, dimethoate, dichlorvos and trichlorfon in this method is 10-9 ~ 10-10g, and the lower limit of determination is usually 5 × 10-4~10-5mg/L。 When the instruments used are different, the detection range of the method is different

Then volatilize the solvent in the fume hood with an infrared lamp (when volatilizing, shake the container constantly to make the fixed liquid coat evenly), and then place it in a 120 ℃ oven for 4H before standby filling method of chromatographic column

plug the tail end of the chromatographic column (connected to one end of the detector) with silanized glass wool, connect the vacuum pump, and connect the other end to a funnel through a hose. After starting the vacuum pump, slowly pour the stationary phase into the chromatographic column, and gently tap the chromatographic column to make the stationary phase fill tightly in the chromatographic column until the stationary phase is no longer pumped into the column.

install the filled chromatographic column with nitrogen, and take 100 ℃ as the starting point, rise 20 ℃ every 2h to 230 ℃ for continuous aging for 24h. (when aging, the chromatographic column should be disconnected from the detector to avoid polluting the detector)

4 samples

4.1 sample properties

water samples, organophosphorus pesticides in water are not very stable and easy to degrade

4.2 water sample collection and storage methods

collect samples with a glass ground bottle (3.5.1), and rinse the sampling bottle with water sample for 2-3 times before sampling. The water sample should be kept in a weak acid state. Because dichlorvos and trichlorfon are easy to degrade, it should be analyzed as soon as possible. The water samples of the other four organophosphorus pesticides can be stored in a 4 ℃ refrigerator for three days

4.3 pretreatment of samples

4.3.1 determination of methyl parathion, parathion, malathion, dimethoate and dichlorvos

shake the samples well and remove mechanical impurities through filtration. Take 100ml of samples (or depending on the water quality) in a 250ml beaker. Adjust the pH to 6.5, then transfer the sample to a 250ml separating funnel and extract it with chloroform for three times. The dosage of chloroform each time is 5ml (compared with 1:20), shake for 5min, and stand for layering. Combine chloroform and collect the water layer. The combined chloroform is dehydrated by anhydrous sodium sulfate. For determination. Anhydrous sodium sulfate dehydration column has an inner diameter of 1cm, a length of 15cm, and an anhydrous sodium sulfate section of 8cm

if the content of organophosphorus pesticides in the alkyl layer of trichloride is too low and below the minimum detection amount, it needs to be concentrated to the required volume by k-d concentrator before determination. If the content of organophosphorus pesticides in the chloroform layer is too high, it is necessary to take less samples or dilute the samples before extraction

4.3.2 determination of trichlorfon

adjust the pH of the water layer collected in 4.3.1 to 9.6, pour it into a 250ml conical flask, cover the cork, put it in a 50 ℃ water bath for alkaline hydrolysis, and constantly shake the conical flask. After 15min, take out the conical flask, cool it to room temperature, adjust the pH to 6.5, and transfer the solution to a 250ml separatory funnel. The following operations are the same as 4.3.1

note: during sample pretreatment, only use pH meter to adjust, not pH test paper
