Environmental Hazards due to Polychlorinated Biphenyls

Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) are frequently encountered as contaminants in soil environments, usually originating from electrical transformer leaks or improper disposal of PCB-containing wastes. PCBs have been used as dielectric fluids in capacitors, transformers, flame retardants, plasticizers and ink solvents. PCBs have been sold under trade names such as Aroclor (Monsanto, USA, Canada and UK), Clophen (Bayer, Germany), Phenoclor (Prodelec, France and Spain), Sovol and Sovtol (Orgsteklo, Orgsintez, and former Soviet Union) and Kanechlor (Kanegafuchi, Japan).
