Abstract : This report summarizes work done to evaluate the efficiency of XAD-4 resin for removing pesticides from water for subsequent analysis. A limited number of pesticides, including lindane, aldrin, and 4,4'-DDT, were added to water, extracted by elution on XAD-4, and analyzed by gas chromatography with electron capture detection. The method was found to be reasonable effective, at least for semiquantitative purposes.
