Abstract: Abstract In the analysis of organochlorines such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polychlorinated naphthalenes (PCNs), levels of, for example, PCB concentration are often expressed as a ‘total PCB’ value, using a straight GC pattern‐matching technique with electron capture detection. Such methods provide little information about the identity of the individual components. In the present study, preliminary investigations using dechlorination with a NiCl2/NaBH4 catalyst indicated that the technique offere…
