Abstract
The analysis of polychlorodibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorodibenzofu rans (PCDFs) from pentachlorophenol (PCP) treated jack pine poles is descri bed. The concentration of PCDD and PCDF was found to change dramatically wi th the age of poles, The older jack pine pole produced in 1956 was found to have a total PCDD/PCDF content of 15 mug/g in the 0-20 mm assay zone of it s' ground-line, while a corresponding jack pine pole treated in 1979 contai ned up to 239 mug/g PCDD/PCDF in the same assay zone.
