Isotope Variations of Organochlorine and Organobromine Compounds in Natural Environments
The first analytical techniques that were developed to analyse the isotope compositions of organochlorine compounds were dual-inlet techniques that required large amounts of sample for analysis. As the concentrations of these compounds, even at contaminated sites, are relatively low, using these techniques would require the processing of large amounts of contaminated water or soil to obtain a sufficient amount of these chlorinated compounds.
