The three most toxic coplanar PCB 77, 126 and 169 have been identified and quantified at ultra trace levels (0.02-4.8 ng/gdw) in swiss sewage sludge samples applying high resolution capillary gas chromatography (HRGC) and electron impact (EI) as well as negative ion chemical ionization (NCI) mass spectrometry (MS). NCI mass spectra have been dominated by the molecular ion as base peak and virtually no fragmentation has been observed. Detection limits of the planar PCB under single ion… CONTINUE READING
