dc.description.abstractPolychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's), long thought to be relatively inert and non-toxic, have been commercially produced and widely used in industrial areas of the world for over 45 years. However, in 1966, Soren Jensen of the University of Stockholm (Sweden), while searching for chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticide residues, observed these compounds in samples of fish, an eagle, and samples of his own, his wife's, and his baby daughter’s hair. Since that time there has been widespread research into the causes, effects, and possible solutions to the PCB problem. This paper will attempt to review some of the more important aspects of PCB's and PCB pollution and especially the use of high pressure liquid chromatography in detecting PCB's in environmental samples.en_US
