      J. Liq. Chromatogr. Relat. Technol. 41, 1052-1065 (2019). Review of the following topics for the period of November 1, 2016 to November 1, 2018: sample preparation for TLC pesticide analysis; lipophilicity and retention studies for the study of biological activity; new reagents for pesticide detection; HPTLC-effect directed analysis on the surface of the layer; TLC-Raman spectrometry for the analysis of thiabendazole, triazophos, and phosmet residues; TLC analysis of radiolabeled pesticides; methods for the separation, detection, and qualitative and quantitative determination of pesticide residues; determination of pesticides in commercial products and the use of TLC for pesticide degradation studies. The review highlighted the isolation, characterization, and determination of less hazardous and less toxic biopesticides from plants, bacteria, fungi, and soil as the most active application area of pesticide TLC today.
