    A method for the determination of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofuran (PCDF) congeners at trace levels in environmental air and soil samples has been developed on the Agilent 7000 Triple Quadrupole GC/MS. Results indicate good agreement with the conventional GC/HRMS technique for the analysis of soil and waste incinerator stack emission samples. Based on the data obtained, there is evidence that GC/MS-MS methods can be used as screening techniques for the analysis of PCDDs and PCDFs in environmental samples.
