Pesticides Determination by Raman Methods

In our laboratory we develop FT-Raman methods for the quantitative determination of pesticides in formulations.
The FT-Raman methods offer several advantages in comparison to spectrophotometric and chromatographic methods:

  • Increased safety: Toxic samples are analysed "as received" avoiding sample pre-treatment.
  • Low analysis time: 30 s are sufficient for acquiring a spectrum region convenient for quantitative analysis.
  • Improved calibration stability: By using external standards.
  • Good agreement with time consuming official methods.
  • Simplicity: Methods can be performed by minimally trained personnel.
