Abstract

The K(ow) values of 39 chlorobiphenyl congeners were determined simultaneously in a PCB mixture, Askarel, using a modified generator column method and congener specific analysis by GC-ECD with narrow-bore capillary columns. The log K(ow) values ranged from 5.18 for dichlorobiphenyls to 7.07 for octachlorobiphenyls with a standard deviation between 0.01 and 0.24. These values were in agreement with data obtained from individual congener measurements as well as with available literature based upon generator column experiments.
