Intention of this research was to develop an analytical technique for analysis of alphacypermethrin (ACYM). It is a pyrethroid insecticide used in agriculture for destroying harmful insects and for killing malaria vector as a public health program. To measure residues of the ACYM in some vegetable samples, a novel method is developed for determination of ACYM. Literatures reveal minimum information about the spectrophotometric determination of ACYM. When ACYM is brominated, it forms dibromoalphacypermethrin which reacts with potassium iodide and potassium iodate in the presence of starch to form blue color dye. The dye show highest absorbance at λmax = 625 nm. Parameters which effect on the reaction were studied and conditions were optimized. Linear calibration curve was obtained from 40 to 120 μg mL-1 ACYM and lower detection limit was 10 μg mL-1. This method was applied on some vegetables and fruit samples for the determination of ACYM.
