Title THE DETERMINATION OF ORGANOHALIDE PESTICIDES AND PCBS ININDUSTRIAL AND MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER
Abstract A measured volume of sample, approximately 1-liter, Is solvent extracted with 15% methylene chloride in hexane using a separatory funnel. The extract is dried and concentrated to a volume of 10 mL or less. Gas chromatographic conditions are described which permit the separation and measurement of the compounds in the extract by electron capture gas chromatography.
