This manual provides the pesticide chemist with a systematic protocol for the quality control of analytical procedures and the problems that arise in the analysis of human or environmental media. It also serves as a guide to the latest and most reliable methodology available for the analysis of pesticide residues in these and other sample matrices. The sections dealing with inter- and intra-laboratory quality control, the evaluation and standardization of materials used, and the operation of the gas chromatograph are intended to highlight and provide advice in dealing with many problems which constantly plague the pesticide analytical chemist. Many aspects of the problem areas involved in extraction and isolation techniques for pesticides in various types of samples are discussed. Techniques for confirming the presence or absence of pesticides in sample materials are treated at some length. This highly important area provides validation of data obtained by the more routine analytical procedures. The gas chromatograph, being the principal instrument currently used in pesticide analysis, often requires simple servicing or troubleshooting. A section addressing some of these problems is included. Last, but by no means least in importance, is a short dissertation of the value and need for systematic training programs for pesticide chemists.
