Özet

Objectives: Aldicarb (2-methyl-2[methylthio] propionaldehyde-o-[methylcarbomyl] oxime), an inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase, is an extremely toxic systemic carbamate pesticide and used commonly in Turkey for crop protection against a wide variety of insects. Its agricultural usage may also cause environmental contamination leading to some harmful effects on human health. In addition, aldicarb has a potential risk that terrorist groups might use delibaretely against public as a chemical weapon due to its commercial availability on the markets and handling without any restriction. Therefore, its removal or detoxification has been increasingly gaining a great importance.
