      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.

For detection, luminescent Vibrio fischeri bacteria were cultivated. Plates were dried for 30-40 min at 120 °C on a plate heater and then immersed for 1 s in the bacteria suspension using an immersion device and a glass dip tank. Excess bacteria suspension was removed. Images were taken using the BioLuminizer with an exposure time of 55 s. The effective and reasonably fast quantitative method is in routine use at several laboratories.
