      Trends Anal. Chem. 165, 117156 (2023). Review of the use of radiolabeled pesticides to track nanoformulations in biological and environmental scenarios and the application of TLC for evaluating the mobility and degradation of pesticides and nanopesticides. The paper described TLC as tool to quantify the metabolites generated in the biodegradation study.

      Detection of amitraz, a formamidine‑based pesticide using chromogenic spray reagent by thin‑layer chromatography
      K. MULANI*, S. KHILLARE, S. GHUMATKAR, R. JAGTAP (*Directorate of Forensic Science Laboratories, Mumbai, MS 400098, India,

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 35, 643-646 (2022). HPTLC of amitraz in visceral tissue on silica gel with hexane - acetone 4:1. Detection by spraying with 10 % sodium hydroxide solution, followed by heating at 80 °C for 10 min. The plate was then removed and kept for attaining room temperature, followed by spraying with freshly prepared sodium nitrite (1%) in acidic media. Right after, alkaline solution of curcumin (1% in sodium hydroxide solution) was sprayed. The hRF value for amitraz was 63.

      Review of thin layer chromatography in pesticide analysis: 2016-2018
      J. SHERMA, F. RABEL* (*ChromHELP, LLC, 136 Progress Ave., Woodbury, NJ 08096, USA,

      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.

      Chromogenic spray reagent for the detection and identification of amitraz in biological materials
      K. MULANI*, B. KAMBLE, V. CHANDEGAONKAR, H. DESHPANDE (*Regional Forensic Science Laboratory, Aurangabad (MS), 431002 India,

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 32(1), 51-53 (2019). TLC of amitraz in visceral tissues (stomach, intestine, liver, spleen, and kidney) on silica gel with hexane - acetone 4:1. Detection by spraying with 10 % sodium hydroxide solution, followed by heating at 80 °C for 10 min. The plate was then removed, kept to attain room temperature and sprayed with 5 % chloranil solution. The hRF values were between 49 and 51. The zones were stable for 8 h.

      Solid phase extraction as clean-up for pesticide residue analysis of tea samples using planar chromatographic developing techniques CBS 110, 12-15 (2013)
      W. SCHWACK, Claudia OELLIG* (*Institute of Food Chemistry, University of Hohenheim, 70599 Stuttgart, Germany,

      Clean-up of matrix-rich samples using high-troughput planar solid phase extraction (HTpSPE). Black and green tea samples were spiked with 7 pesticides (acetamiprid, azoxystrobin, chlorpyrifos, fenarimol, mepanipyrim, penconazole, and primicarb) at level 0.01, 0.1 and 1 mg/kg. Extraction with acetonitrile, pre-cleaning by dispersive SPE. TLC on silica gel (prewashed with acetonitrile) of samples applied as rectangles of 3 x 16 mm first with acetonitrile - water 19:1 over 85 mm and after drying for 5 min with acetone - water 7:1 in the opposite direction over 31 mm. Detection under UV 254 and 366 nm and by dipping in primuline reagent (0.2 % in acetone - water 4:1) and detection under UV 366 nm and white light. Elution of target zones into autosampler vials by TLC-MS Interface with acetonitrile - 10 mM ammonium formate buffer 1:1, flow rate 0.2 mL/min. After clean-up the samples are free of caffeine which interferes with pesticide detection.
