Project objectives:
To develop a strategy for the characterisation of pesticides and their degradation products based on the combination of chemical analytical techniques and 
Project Summary:
Due to contemporary analytical techniques being inadequate the project aimed to develop new and selective extraction and fractionation techniques, to be 
used in conjunction with analytical techniques such as FAB/MS, APCI/MS and MS/MS and bioassay techniques in order to produce a more accurate characterisation
of pesticides and degradation products
