Aroclor 1254, which consists of a mixture of polychlorobiphenyls
(PCBs), induces rat CYPs 1A1/2, 2B1/2 (roughly corresponding to 2B6 in humans) and 2C6 (2C8/9 in humans) (Ku et al., 2007).

 analysed daily fluxes of polychlorobiphenyls
(PCBs), hexachlorobenzene (HCB), polychlorinated dibenzop-dioxins, and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) in bulk depositions distributed in different sites of the Venice Lagoon, with the aim of investigating the spatial distribution of organic compounds and the impact of the industrial site.

Fish samples were submitted to the California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory System, Davis Laboratory, University of California, Davis (CA, USA) for metals, organochlorine insecticide, and polychlorobiphenyls

Ships registered in the EU account for 17% of global tonnage and some 90% of large EU merchant ships end up being dismantled on beaches in South-East Asia (India, Bangladesh and Pakistan) in facilities that do not meet the environmental protection and safety standards required to manage the hazardous materials found in end-of-life ships, such as asbestos, polychlorobiphenyls
(PCBs), tributyltin and sludge oil.
The occurrence of metals, alkylphenol and alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs), Polychlorobiphenyls
(PCBs), and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), has been documented in different fish species (carp, brown bullhead), water, and sediment from the Cuyahoga River (Baumann and others 1991; Smith and others 1994; Lesko and others 1996; Lin and others 2001; Rice and others 2003; Yang and others 2003).
