Analysis of contaminated fuels / by B.F. Scott, Alain R. Cassista and Robert L. Hong-You.: En13-5/89-129E-PDF

"The GC methodology for PCB congeners, which also analyzes for chlorobenzenes and organochlorines eluted in the non-polar eluate of the silica gel cleanup, was used to analyze suspected fuel samples for PCBs and OCs. A total of 91 fuel samples were analyzed as were three intentionally spiked samples, eight duplicates, two secondary standards, four waste samples containing PCBs, three quality control samples and seven calibration standards. The calibration standards analyzed randomly during the analysis, exhibited a high degree of reproducibility. Only seven of the samples contained PCBs, but at concentrations well below the 1 ppm level. Also no chlorobenzenes or other OCs were found in the samples"--Abstract.
