Abstract Residues of polychlorinated biphenyls have been found in human tissue and in milk collected from the general population of the United States. In a national survey of human adipose tissue during fiscal years 1973 and 1974, 35.1 and 40.3 percent, respectively, of the tissue collected contained levels of 1ppm or more of polychlorinated biphenyls on a wet-weight basis. Electron capture-gas chromatographic analysis of this tissue revealed that the compounds found in adipose tissue were most comparable to those prevalent in Aroclor 1254 and Aroclor 1260. Additionally, semi-quantitative estimation of these residues was accomplished by thin-layer chromatography. Evidence from gas-liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry indicated that the most frequently encountered polychlorinated biphenyl residues were penta-, hexa-, and heptachloro-biphenyl compounds.
