Development of a newautomatic on-site detector of pesticides in natural waters by photo induced fluorescence, application to three phenylurea and benzoylurea herbicide
Prototypes of on-site automatic photo induced fluorescence detectors of pesticide in natural waters are set up
and applied for the determination of the benzoyl- and phenylurea pesticides, namely fluometuron, monolinuron
and diflubenzuron. As these pesticides present no native fluorescence the set up systemuse the photo conversion
under UV irradiation of these pesticides into highly fluorescent photoproducts.
A first system, called AUTOPIF, (evolution the commercial AQUAPOD system) is develop using a detection via a
diode array spectrometer. To improve the sensitivity of the method, a second system, called AUTOPIF+, is developed
with a more resolute spectrometer and an intensified CCD camera detection.
Analytical applicationswere carried out in aqueous solution and detected on linewith the AUTOPIF and AUTOPIF+
system. The calibration curves are linear over one order of magnitude, and the limits of detection are in the
?g mL?1 range. The analytical performances of these methods for the determination of the three pesticides are
satisfactory in comparison to other classical PIFmethods published for the determination of phenylurea pesticides
in aqueous solutions. Our results showthat the AUTOPIF and AUTOPIF+methods are versatile, sensible and can be
easily applied as an alert system to detect pollutant residues in naturals waters over a threshold value.
