Abstract: High performance thin layer chromatography has found wide recognition in many fields and in sensitivity of detection offers particular advantage to the toxicologist, which has increased, 10 to 100 times as compared to the chemical method. It has become an important analytical tool since it can separate complex mixture in a relatively short time. In existing study, an effort has been taken to determine organ phosphorus insecticide Acephate by using high performance thin layer chromatography. A new specific Sensitive chromogenic reagent 0.1% solution of ferric chloride in 80% ethanol and 1 % Sulfosalicylic acid in 80% ethanol has been developed for detection of Acephate an organophosphorus insecticide with solvent system petroleum ether: methanol (95: 5).
Keywords: Chromatography, chromogenic, Acephate, ferric chloride, ethanol, Sulfosalicylic, organophosphorus.
