The occurrence of Monochrotophos, Copperoxychloride and Galaxy pesticides in 10 tender coconut water samples (Arasampattai, Sowcot pachai, kuttyaiadi (Kerala),Malayan orange, Malayan yellow, Alphanam, sowchot orange, Nettai, Kuttai and 1000 kaychi) in southern area of Tamilnadu, India was investigated. The HPLC results shows that the monochrotophos was found Malayan orange (5.847 mg kg-1) and it was above the Maximum Residual Limit (MRL (0.5-1.0 mg kg-1) and Malayan yellow (0.003 mg kg-1) and Nettai (0.323 mg kg-1) were below the Maximum Residual Limit. In Malayan yellow tender coconut samples copper oxychloride was found (0.003 mg kg-1) below the MRL value (20.0 mg kg-1). Analysis was carried out using HPLC-UV.
