The profiles of chlorinated terpenes in Finnish environmental samples were compared by GLC-SIM technique with those of toxaphene and Eastern European “dark”. The profiles in the seal blubber in the Northern and in the Eastern Baltic Sea proved to be similar. Chlorinated terpenes were found to be present in Finnish human milk.

The spent bleach liquor of pine kraft pulp mill contained components having similar retention times and responses to those from toxaphene components.
