Abstract

For the control of pests on grapes, Lindane, Malathion, Dimetboate and Sevin arc commonly and largely used in India. Grapes samples received from various parts of the country in Mysore market showed the pesticide residues in significant quantities. The efficacy of different ldeĀ«lntaminating agents is screened to remove the above pesticide residues. Among the different chemical solutions screened, 2% sodium bicarbonate and 2% acetic acid are found to be more effective for the removal of lindane, malathion, dimethoate and sevin from grapes. A simple clean up procedure based on Thin-Layer Chromatography for the separation and quick detection of the insecticide residues from the interfering pigments is discussed.
