A photo-induced fluorescence method for determination of propanil herbicide residues in Senegal natural waters
Many pesticides, such as propanil, a post-emergence contact anilide
herbicide, are extensively applied for protecting various crops in
Senegal and other countries, resulting in the presence of pesticide
residues in natural waters, with notable toxicological effects on increased with the irradiation time, towards a maximum, then,
rapidly decreased, and, for some solvents, reached a plateau
region (Fig. 1). The optimum irradiation times (topt = 6-15min)
were shorter in organic solvents, and the PIF signals measured at
topt were significantly higher in organic solutions than in water.
Therefore, it was more advantageous to use organic media for
improving the method rapidity and sensitivity.
The excitation and emission PIF spectra presented a single peak.
No significant shift of the excitation maximum was noted, whereas
blue-shifts of 11-35nm of the PIF emission peak in methanol and cyclohexane relative towater occurred. Upon increasing the irradiation
time, propanil did not exhibit any significant change in the shape of
the PIF emission spectra, but a significant increase of PIF intensity.
