Dataset for airborne polychlorinated biphenyl congener concentrations using PUF-PAS from Chicago, Il, 2011-2013

Andres Martinez, Nicholas J Herkert, Jacob C Jahnke & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the levels of airborne PCB concentrations from 180 samples from 18 locations, from 2011 to 2013 in the metropolitan Chicago area, Il, USA. Measurements were obtained using polyurethane foam passive air samplers (PUF-PAS), deployed for ~45 days. Effective volumes for individual PCB congeners were calculated from a previously published model and included here. Further, individual PCB congener masses from 24 laboratory blank PUFs are included, as well as the masses of the individual...

Dataset of concentrations of individual polychlorinated biphenyl congeners and total organic carbon in soils from East Chicago, Indiana, USA in 2017/2018

Andres Martinez, Jason Hua, Ezazul Haque, Peter Thorne & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the results of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the urban surficial soil of East Chicago, Indiana, USA, from thirty-three sites. PCB congeners were measured using tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS) in multiple reaction monitoring mode (MRM), a method that provides a high-level selectivity and sensitivity for PCBs in complex environmental samples. One hundred and seventy-one individual PCB congeners were detected and measured. The concentration of total PCB ranged from 20 to 1700 ng/g dry weight....
