A simple procedure for the determination of six non-coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in medium volumes of indoor air is described. Samples are forced at 6 m3/h through a device consisting of a quartz filter connected to the end of a conventional solid-phase extraction cartridge containing 60 mg of functionalized styrene-divinylbenzene. PCBs(More)
A procedure for the determination of the total content of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in industrial oil samples using gas chromatography coupled to atomic emission detection (GC-AED) is presented. Analytes were extracted from the samples using dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), this extract was diluted with water, and PCBs were concentrated on a PDMS-DVB(More)
A low cost method for the screening of six polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and seven polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in biological samples containing up to 100% of fat is presented. Compounds are extracted from the sample and isolated from lipids using a matrix solid-phase dispersion (MSPD) cartridge and 20 ml of n-hexane as elution solvent. PBDEs(More)
The persistence, ubiquity, and toxicity of polyhalogenated compounds, together with their presence in fish feed, make it necessary to monitor these organic pollutants in the routine quality assurance programs of aquaculture activities, as this food chain is a source of these toxic compounds for human consumers. A new approach based on simultaneous(More)
A one-step extraction-purification method for the determination of polychlorinated biphenyls (CBs) in fat samples was developed. Matrix solid-phase dispersion using different combinations of normal phase sorbents and elution solvents was evaluated, in terms of extraction yield and lipids removal efficiency, for the isolation of CBs from butter, chicken and(More)
The different groups and/or classes among phenolic acids and aldehydes identified during the elaboration process of "fino" sherry wine have been studied. The study was carried out using different processes during the elaboration of the wine and we have attempted to establish whether the different treatments of the grape affect these groupings. The study was(More)
An alternative method for the extraction of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in ash samples, which is less time and solvent consuming than Soxhlet extraction, is presented. A study was carried out to evaluate the possibilities of microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) to determine exactly which parameters affect the efficiency of the process, since direct(More)
A procedure for the determination of 17 chlorophenolic compounds in ash samples obtained from the incineration of waste materials is described. Analytes were simultaneously derivatized with acetic anhydride in presence of triethylamine (TEA), and extracted from the sample in a mixture of n-hexane acetone using a microwave system equipped with closed(More)
