Properties and determination of pesticides in fruits and vegetables

Abstract

The intensive development of agriculture means that more and more toxic organic and inorganic compounds are entering theenvironment. Because of their widespread use, stability, selective toxicity and bioaccumulation, pesticides are among the mosttoxic substances contaminating the environment. They are particularly dangerous in fruit and vegetables, by which people areexposed to them. It is therefore crucial to monitor pesticide residues in fruit and vegetables using all available analytical methods.We set out the problems in the determination of organonitrogen and organophosphorus pesticides in samples of fruit andvegetables, including the complexity and the diversity of matrices in biological materials, and the very low level of pesticidespresent, as a result of which target analytes have to be isolated and then enriched prior to final determination.We discuss the various stages in the determination of pesticide residues in fruit and vegetables. We present results from theliterature in the context of Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) of target pesticides in fruit and vegetable samples. We discuss themerits of the Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, and Safe (QuEChERS) technique and two-dimensional gas chromatography.
