Abstract

A REVIEW ON ANALYTICAL METHODS FOR DETERMINING METHYL PARATHION IN ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES

Shaista Firdous* and S. H. Rizwan

ABSTRACT

Methyl Parathion is an organophosphorous pesticide and is classified by the Environmental Protection Agency as a class I toxicant. It is sprayed on crops to kill insects. Methyl parathion partitions mainly to air and soil in the environment, with lesser amounts in plants and animals. In human body, the liver breaks some of the methyl parathion down to a more harmful chemical, methyl paraoxon. Methyl parathion and methyl paraoxon bind to enzyme acetylcholinesterase in nerves and interferes with the normal functioning of nerves and brain. This review paper presents an overview of some chromatographic methods reported for the analysis of methyl parathion in environmental samples. The review has also explored the analysis of MeP by optical, fluorescent biosensors whose practicability was tested in real environmental samples and extended Raman Spectroscopy approaches for pesticide analysis.
