This introductory module explores the structure/solubility relationships of organic compounds, explains how to extract pesticide residues from fruits and vegetables, analyses the extract for pesticide content using gas chromatography and uses the data collected as a basis for discussion about the issues surrounding pesticide regulation. Intended for use in the laboratory portion of an introductory environmental chemistry or general chemistry course, this module also includes a detailed Instructor's Manual.
SUSAN E. KEGLEY is a Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of California at Berkeley and has taught environmental chemistry for eight years LAURA J. WISE, University of California, San Francisco
