Abstract
The effectiveness of extracting p,p'-DDT and p,p'-DDE from aged contaminated soil samples by means of pressurized liquid extraction (PLE) was evaluated. Two soil samples, which were contaminated more than 10 years ago, were used in the investigation. The static extraction time was optimised and then validated against the total sum of target analytes obtained from multiple sequential extractions. The PLE results were also compared with Soxhlet extraction (SOX). PLE for 3x10 min at 100 degrees C was proven to be more exhaustive than SOX in the determination of p,p'-DDE from both soil samples. In the case of p,p'-DDT, PLE was found to be equally as exhaustive as SOX. Additionally, most of the previous PLE investigations used hazardous organic... (More)

In the case of p,p'-DDT, PLE was found to be equally as exhaustive as SOX. Additionally, most of the previous PLE investigations used hazardous organic solvents such as n-hexane, toluene and dichloromethane mixed with acetone, whereas in this investigation the less toxic solvent combination n-heptane/acetone has been employed.
