Abstract

The HRGC-determination of Taxophene® residues in the presence of other chlorinated hydrocarbons with similar retention times is often difficult. This problem can satisfactorily be overcome by using purely isolated high-chlorinated bornane derivatives (7-17) as standard. The method is highly selective for measuring toxaphene in complex environmental matrices, such as fish, and can also be used for evaluating the changes in the relative distribution that may have resulted from bioaccumulation and environmental transformation.
