The levels, compositions and distributions of organochlorine pesticides and metabolites were determined in soil samples collected 5-14 years after clean-up was carried out at seven contaminated sites in Tanzania. Samples were collected from various depths (5-10 cm, 30 cm, and 50 cm for most sites and up to 300 cm for one site. Determination of the analytes was performed using a high resolution GC-MS and isotope dilution technology. DDT, DDD, DDE, HCH isomers, aldrin, dieldrin, endrin… CONTINUE READING
