Suitability of several carbon sorbents for the fractionation of various sub-groups of toxic polychlorinated biphenyls, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans



Suitability of several carbon sorbents for the fractionation of various sub-groups of toxic polychlorinated biphenyls, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans



Journal of Chromatography A 917(1-2): 227-237



Feasibility of several sorbents, Amoco PX-21, Carbosphere, Carbopack B and C and 2-(1-pyrenyl) ethyldimethylsilylated silica gel (PYE), for the fractionation of polychlorinated biphenyls, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and furans was investigated. Selection was based on their suitability for quantitative isolation of the target compounds with special attention for the most toxic mono- and non-ortho-CBs to prevent coelution with other congeners during the final determination by gas chromatography. Cost-effectiveness in terms of solvent and time consumption as well as feasibility for routine analysis and automation were considered additional merits of the methods compared. Final evaluation of the procedures providing the best results was done by comparison of the results obtained from the analysis of real-life samples. The results showed that, among the sorbents tested, Carbopack B and PYE were the most suitable for routine analysis. In particular, these sorbents allowed a more reliable determination of the toxic congeners and, consequently, of the toxic equivalents of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin content in environmental samples.
