Detection of polychlorinated biphenyls (ASTM D4059)


What are polychlorinated biphenyls (Tcf’s)?

They are synthetic fluids used in electrical equipment known in our country as askarel. Exceptionally stable and resistant to oxidation compounds, which has caused the liquid persists.

Because the bpc’s are considered one of the most abundant pollutants in the world, an analytical technique for identification was established, which is to determine qualitative and quantitative mind the three compounds for filling transformers. The aroclor to detect by the chromatographic analysis are:
