The potential environmental and health impact of PCBs must account not only for the integrated quantitation of the PCBs mixtures but also the concentrations of the specific congeners which are potentially toxic. The authors confirm the feasibility of high resolution PCB analysis of commercial and environmental PCB mixtures. They anticipate using this approach to accurately measure the concentrations of the specific PCB isomers in environmental and biological samples and to determine the effects of PCB structures on the ecological dynamics of this complex group of chemicals.
