Polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins, polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are environmental contaminants regulated by the Stockholm Convention of Persistent Organic Pollutants. Being hydrophobic and lipophilic, these compounds accumulate in the marine environment in sediments and lipid‐rich tissue of marine organisms, making these matrices preferred media for environmental monitoring. This document focuses on the analysis of PCDD/Fs… CONTINUE READING
