Abstract

Abstract Samples of adipose tissue from 45 occupationally exposed employees of a chemical plant and - as controls - from 21 persons resident in Hamburg, Germany have been analysed for PCDDs and PCDFs by HRGC-HRMS. For TCDD and some other compounds, the results include the highest concentrations ever found in humans. Correlations between chloracne and dioxin levels are discussed.
