PCBs and other organochlorines in human tissue samples from the Welsh population. I: Adipose.
The general exposure of humans to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and sigmaDDT (i.e., p,p'-DDT+p,p'-DDE+p,p'-DDD) in Wales (UK) was determined through the analysis of adipose tissue samples collected from 75 individuals during post-mortem examinations in 1990-1991.
Fifty PCB congeners were screened, of which 29 were identified in most of the samples.
Congener IUPAC number 138, 153 and 180 were the most aboundant compounds, accounting for an average of 55% of the sigmaPCB congeners analysed.
