A review of the literature on polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) analysis and recommendations for methods to determine by-product PCBs in commercial products and other matrices is presented. This report was prepared to assist EPA in formulating a rule regulating by-product PCBs. The published literature on PCB analysis is critically reviewed. Several hundred references are cited in a bibliography. The review if subdivided into extraction, cleanup, determination, data reduction, confirmation, screening, quality assurance, and by-product analysis sections. The determination section includes TLC, HPLC, GC (PGC and CGC), GC detectors (ECD, FID, HECD, EIMS, and other MS) and nonchromatographic analytical methods (NMR, IR, electrochemistry, NAA, and RIA). Techniques applicable to analysis of commercial products, air, and water for by-product PCBs are discussed. The final section of this report presents a recommended overall primary analytical scheme.
