Generally, small silica gel or Florisil columns should be sufficient for this purpose. Separation and fractionation of PCBs are achieved by applying the extract in a small volume of apolar solvent and fractionating it by eluting with hexane, followed by one or two other solvents of increasing polarity. Polar compounds are retained on the column, and nonpolar compounds are sequentially eluted (Muir and Sverko 2006). Florisil is one of the oldest materials used to clean up PCBs. Florisil is a mixture of several inorganic oxides with SiO2 and MgO as its main components; the composition varies from batch to batch, and as a consequence, this variability does not contribute to the robustness of the procedure (Smedes and de Boer 1997).
2007; Beyer and Biziuk 2008). Probably for these reasons MAE has been rarely used for PCB extraction (Björklund et al. 2002). For example, Carro et al. (2000) have used closedvessel MAE to extract PCBs in the marine mussel. MAE, however, does not allow separation of the analytes from other interferents; thus, it is desirable to eliminate these compounds after extraction using appropriate cleanup steps (Letelier and Budzinski 1999; Carro et al. 2000). Supercritical fluid extraction A supercritical fluid (SF) is defined as an element or compound above its critical pressure and temperature (Smith 1999).
GPC can be easily automated by simply incorporating an autosam- 31 pler and an automated fraction collector (Tekel and Hatrik 1996; de Boer and Law 2003; Goñi et al. 2009), and a fractionation time interval can be selected to obtain a clean extract (Gilbert-López et al. 2009). However, GPC does not separate PCBs from interfering compounds of the same molecular mass range, and in this case an additional fractionation is usually required (Smedes and de Boer 1997). Adsorption columns Separation of PCBs from coextracted molecules is simple for low-lipidic samples such as vegetables.
