The commercially important members of the group - iprodione, procymidone and vinclozolin - are considered. The metabolism in plants, the residue levels in field treated crops, and the analytical methods for determining the residues of these compounds are summarized. The data indicate that the residues of parent compounds are present in food at such concentrations which enable their determination with several multiresidue procedures. Since the total residues deriving from approved, registered use of the compounds are toxicologically acceptable, the MRLs should be expressed and the residues analysed as the parent compounds alone to simplify the analysis of a great number of samples in the regulatory laboratories.
