Combination of photo-induced fluorescence and GC–MS for elucidating the photodegradation mechanisms of diflubenzuron and fenuron pesticides
Diflubenzuron (DFB) and fenuron (FEN) are benzoylurea and phenylurea pesticides,
widely used in Senegal, that do not exhibit any natural fluorescence, but can be determined
by means of photoinduced fluorescence (PIF) methods. Photodegradation of
DFB and FEN yielded a number of fluorescent and non?fluorescent photoproducts.
For both pesticides, at least 10 photoproducts were detected and identified by gas
chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC/MS). To identify the formed fluorescent
DFB and FEN photoproducts, their fluorescence spectra were compared with those
of standard compounds, including phenol and p?hydroxyaniline.
