Abstract

A highly sensitive fourth derivative spectrophotometric method is presented for the residue analysis of ethylenebis dithiocarbamate fungicide Maneb. The fungicide maneb forms a blue complex with sodium molybdate on heating which is studied spectrophotometrically. The method has been successfully applied to maneb determination in wheat grains and soft drinks with high recoveries. The analytical sensitivity of the present method has been found to be 0.0011 μg/mL.
