Analytical Chemistry of PCBs provides a comprehensive review of the analytical chemistry of PCBs. The book is an invaluble resource for both chemists with no experience in PCB analysis and seasoned PCB researchers by reviewing possible approaches to analytical problems, serving as a compendium of the literature, and presenting comparisons of available techniques. The book contains 10 chapters that address such topics as the various properties of PCBs; the discrete steps of analysis, including sampling, extraction, cleanup, determination, data reduction, and quality assurance; and collaborative testing, which is the ultimate step in method validation. Analytical chemists, lawyers, environmental scientists, and environmental regulators should consider this book an important reference resource for understanding the complicated process of PCB analysis.
