Various voltammetric methods (cyclic, DC, and differential pulse voltammetry) were tested for the title purpose. The last mentioned method with optimized parameters was finally chosen for the determination. A low LOD of 3.62?10-8 mol L-1 and a linear dynamic range from 2.5?10-7 to 2?10-5 mol L-1 were reached. An influence of possible interfering agents was studied as well. The proposed method was used in the analysis of pesticide preparation and of spiked samples of river water.
