The solvent was removed in vacuum and the residue was extracted with diethylether (200 mL).
Diethylether stimulated hydrolytic rate of long chain PC ([C.sub.12] to [C.sub.18]) but inhibited the shorter chain PC ([C.sub.8] to [C.sub.10]).
Diethylether is one of the low boiling point solvents, that is, employed chemical desorbent in many studies [14, 26-28].
The yellowish oil (0.3 ml/ for leaves and 0.5 ml for flower and fruits) was dissolved in diethylether (lml) and collected and dehydrated by anhydrous sodium sulfate.
The analysis procedures were carried out as follows: five grams of the deposit under investigation were accurately weighed and the solid material was extracted from the sample by diluting it several times in petroleum ether and diethylether. The residual solid material was then collected by evaporating the solvents, and the non-organic material was weighed.

Several extraction solvents were attempted: diethylether, ethylacetate, chloroform, n-hexane, n-pentane, and dichloromethane.
The reaction was terminated with 2 mL of saturated NaCl and the benzoylpolyamines extracted in 2 mL of diethylether (anhydrous, HPLC grade).
Now soxhlet extracts (1mL) of each sample were poured on to the column and column was eluted first with 10 ml n-Hexane for PCBs and then with 10 mL 15% diethylether in n-Hexane for pesticides.
Thus obtained products were filtered and washed 4 times with water and diethylether. The desired products were obtained with high purity.
