Polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins, polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are environmental contaminants regulated by the Stockholm Convention of Persistent Organic Pollutants. Being hydrophobic and lipophilic, these compounds accumulate in the marine environment in sediments and lipid‐rich tissue of marine organisms, making these matrices preferred media for environmental monitoring. This document focuses on the analysis of PCDD/Fs and dioxin‐like PCBs (i.e. non‐ortho and mono‐ortho PCBs), which have a similar planar molecular structure to PCDD/Fs and, therefore, exhibit similar toxic effects. Because concentrations in the environment are low and common analytical methods result in co‐extractions of a large variety of potentially interfering compounds, analytical procedures are complex. This document includes comments and advice on sampling and sample pretreatment steps, suitable extraction and clean‐up procedures as well as preconcentration metho.....
