Monitoring and effects of nicosulfuron in aquatic mesocosms: development of a simple analytical procedure and evidence for low toxicity to phytoplankton communities



Monitoring and effects of nicosulfuron in aquatic mesocosms: development of a simple analytical procedure and evidence for low toxicity to phytoplankton communities



Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry 382(1): 108-114



A new analytical procedure is proposed for monitoring nicosulfuron (sulfonylurea herbicide) in aquatic mesocosms derived from complex ecosystems. The approach is based on alternate use of the anionic and molecular forms of the pesticide during the procedure. It also takes into account the sensitivity of the molecule to hydrolysis.
