2007). A disadvantage of this method is that extracts must be filtered after extraction, polar solvents are needed for extraction, and equipment is expensive (Fidalgo-Used et al. 2007; Beyer and Biziuk 2008). Probably for these reasons MAE has been rarely used for PCB extraction (Björklund et al. 2002). For example, Carro et al. (2000) have used closedvessel MAE to extract PCBs in the marine mussel. MAE, however, does not allow separation of the analytes from other interferents; thus, it is desirable to eliminate these compounds after extraction using appropriate cleanup steps (Letelier and Budzinski 1999; Carro et al.

2008) have used Soxhlet to extract vegetables with a solution of hexane/ acetone (9 : 1 v/v) for 24 hours. Huckins et al. (1990) have proposed the use of semipermeable membrane during extraction for separating the component fraction from the lipid matrix of foodstuffs. During the extraction, PCBs are allowed to cross the semipermeable membrane of a polyethylene bag, and the lipid matrix is retained; extraction time is shorter than normal, and it is sufficient for a quantitative recovery of all the components of interest.

Separation and fractionation of PCBs are achieved by applying the extract in a small volume of apolar solvent and fractionating it by eluting with hexane, followed by one or two other solvents of increasing polarity. Polar compounds are retained on the column, and nonpolar compounds are sequentially eluted (Muir and Sverko 2006). Florisil is one of the oldest materials used to clean up PCBs. Florisil is a mixture of several inorganic oxides with SiO2 and MgO as its main components; the composition varies from batch to batch, and as a consequence, this variability does not contribute to the robustness of the procedure (Smedes and de Boer 1997).
