Analysis of Pesticides on a Golf Course (LC/MS)
Numerous pesticides are used to maintain the greens on golf courses. While the quantities of pesticides used on Japan's golf courses are less than the quantities on farm fields, some pesticides are restricted, as the golf courses are often located near water sources, leading to concerns that run-off may contaminate river water or tap water.
The LC/MS analysis of these pesticides is introduced below.
This analysis instrument is widely used for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of trace quantities of chemical substances. The column and mobile phase are selected to suit the analysis target. Due to its excellent qualitative capacity, the LC/MS is a powerful tool for the quantitative analysis of multiple components.
