ABSTRACT
Contribution analysis of dithiocarbamates pesticides used on tomatoes treatment has been reported. The study is focused on analysis and determination of some dithiocarbamates like, Maneb, Mancozeb, Zineb and Propineb, in order to achieve accurate impact of theses pesticides on water and soil. Analysis method is based on decomposition of dithiocarbamate by heating under acidic attack to give carbon disulfide complexed with copper acetate solution in presence of diethanolamine. Complex formed is dosed spectrophotometrically at 435 nm. Degradation kinetic of dithiocarbamate in aqueous media have been realized and proved that dithiocarbamate are degraded by simple air exposition. In the other hand, pH affects also dithiocarbamate degradation by increasing hydroxyl ions to participate for dithiocarbamate instability. Dithiocarbamate mobility on Moroccan soils samples have been realised and don’t have the same degradation mode.
