Paper Abstract

For the first time the herbicides ethidimuron, amizol and methabenzthiazuron were detected in water by means of time resolved laser fluorescence spectroscopy. The suitability of the algae chlorella kessleri as a biological indicator was tested. By using time resolved LIF, the herbicides' absorption spectra and their effects on the fluorescence properties of the algae it was possible to distinguish between the three herbicides.
