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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
