Livsmedel med låg fetthalt - Bestämning av ditiokarbamat- och tiramdisulfidrester - Del 3: Xantogenat-metoden
This European Standard specifies a UV spectrometric method for the determination of low-level residues of dithiocarbamate and thiuram disulfide fungicides as xanthogenate. Dithiocarbamate and thiuram disulfide fungicides release carbon disulfide under specified conditions (e.g. mancozeb, maneb, propineb, thiram, zineb). It is applicable to such compounds especially in and on those foodstuffs of plant origin for which low maximum residue levels have been set.
Only the quantification of the whole group is possible using this method and not the identification of individual compounds. Generally the maximum residue levels (MRLs) are expressed in terms of carbon disulfide.
