Methods were developed for the extraction, clean-up and GC/MS analysis of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and related chemicals in municipal sludge samples. Each of the sludge samples received from nine major United States cities was processed to yield a neutral fraction and two acid fractions which were methylated with dimethylsulfate and diazomethane, respectively. Samples were cleaned up by silica gel column chromatography. A total of 35 chlorinated compounds were found in the full scan GC/MS analysis, including polychlorobiphenyls, polychloronaphthalenes, polychloroaniline, polychlorobenzene and DDE. Some chlorinated compounds remain unidentified.
