Determination of phenylurea pesticides by direct laser photo-induced fluorescence.
A direct Laser Photo-Induced Fluorescence (DL-PIF) method is developed for the determination of two
phenylurea pesticides, namely fenuron and diflubenzuron. The DL-PIF method uses a tunable Nd:YAGOPO
Laser to obtain the photoproduct(s) and to simultaneously analyze their fluorescence in a short
acquisition time on an intensified CCD camera. Compared to classical PIF methods, the use of a tunable
laser improves the selectivity (by choosing the suitable excitation wavelength), increases the sensitivity (due to the high energy of the beam) and also reduces the time of analysis. The analytical performances of this
method for the determination of both pesticides are satisfactory in comparison to other classical PIF methods published for the determination of phenylurea pesticides. The calibration curves were linear over one order of magnitude and the limits of detection were in the ng·mL-1 range. Satisfactory recoveries were obtained in the analysis of both pesticides in river and sea water spiked samples.
