Analysis of PCBs in Food and Biological Samples Using GC-Triple Quadrupole MS–MS

This application details a fast, reliable and highly selective trace-level screening method for the quantification of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in environmental, food and biological samples, using gas chromatography and a triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometer. The analytical strategy is analogous to the well-established US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Method 1668A.

Trace Analysis of Brominated Flame Retardants with High Resolution GC–MS

Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are among the most important and widely used flame retardants. Recent legislation banned certain PBDE congeners.? EU directive 2003/11/EC prohibits the use of Penta-BDE and Octa-BDE for the member states of the European community.? Therefore, analysis of PBDEs have received increased interest as a result of their known toxicity.
