A liquid chromatographic method for determination of bendiocarb in technical materials and wettable powders was tested by 12 collaborators. Bendiocarb is dissolved in acetonitrile containing 0.1% propiophenone as internal standard. This solution is analyzed on a liquid chromatograph utilizing a reverse phase (C18) column. The compound is detected at 254 nm and peak area is used for quantitation. The 3 different materials studied contained 20, 80, and nominally 100% bendiocarb. Each was examined in duplicate to provide the necessary matched pairs. Collaborators approved of the ease and simplicity of the method and, in particular, the way the method can be applied to automatic injection assemblies. The statistical data show acceptable precision of the method: Reproducibility coefficients of variation were 20% material, 2.04%; 80% material, 1.02%; and nominal 100% material (technical product), 0.64%. The method has been adopted official first action.
