Organophosphorus pesticides (OPs) are a diverse family of pesticides and particularly aracicides used since the 1940s. In contrast to organochlorine pesticides, OPs have a shorter persistent time which favors their worldwide application. However, OPs and their derivate are highly toxic. They inhibit the Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), an enzyme which is essential for neurotransmission in insects, animals and humans. The inhibition process is irreversible and it results in impairments in attention, memory, and other domains of cognition. The high toxicity and persistence of OPs in the environment is of great concern, as they have repeatedly been detected in soils, sediments waterbodies as well as food and drinking water. Thus tools are needed to understand their sources, reactive transport pathways and sinks in the environment. Stable isotope analysis has been proved as a valuable method for the detection of origin of chemicals, as the isotopic profile reflects the isotopic composition of raw materials, synthetic pathways and purification processes.
