For peaches, plums, and sweet cherries pyrimethanil was extracted by homogenization with acetone, the extract acidified and washed with hexane and basified to enable solvent partition (ethyl acetate and hexane). Final clean-up was by silica SPE, with determination by gas chromatography with mass selective detection. The validated sensitivity of the method is 0.05 ppm for pyrimethanil, which allows for the detection and measurement of residues in or on stone fruits at or above the proposed tolerance level.
