A manual giving practical guidelines developed by four RIRDC projects investigating analytical techniques for the determination of pesticide minimum residue limits in essential oils. The detection of analytes in essential oils, however, has specific problems associated. The chemical properties of the active ingredients of many pesticides, such as polarity and retention behaviour in chromatography media, are often very similar to those observed for components of essential oils. This manual provides an overview of the applicability of available analytical technology to the detection of analytes. Methodologies are designed based on the chemical type of the active ingredient. 2004, 109pp, Pub No 04/109; $21
