Chemical Analysis of Toxaphene, PCB and Chlorinated Pesticides.

Updated 2000-06-15

The aim of the project is to develop a method for analysis of toxaphene in biota from the marine environment. The project includes a modification/improvement of the method of the chemical analysis of PCBs and cholrinated pesticides used at the Danish Environmental Research Institute.

This is not a National Implementation Plan (NIP) project
