The report describes a gas chromatographic/mass spectrometric (GC/MS) procedure that overcomes problems encountered when using GC procedures (previously used to determine polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in solids and water) on emissions from combustion sources. The GC/MS procedure, which relies on selected mass scanning in restricted regions of the chromatograms, was developed because in the combustion process the distribution pattern of the individual PCBs changes, rendering invalid the pattern matching approach used with the gas chromatographic/electron capture detection (GC/ECD) method.
