Gas chromatography of dioxins and chlorinated pesticides in water samples has been performed after adsorption from 50 to 100 mL sample on to a cartridge containing 100 mg cyanopropyl-bonded porous silica. The dioxins and chlorinated pesticides were desorbed with 2 mL carbon disulfide, which is concentrated and analysed by gas chromatography coupled with an electron-capture detector. The average recovery of 0.20 ng mL-1 of each chlorinated pesticide and of 0.50 ng mL-1 of each dioxin from distilled water and river water samples (50 mL) is 97.2% with a standard deviation (SD) 2.6. In the dioxin separation from chlorinated pesticides the recovery of dioxins at levels of 0.1–0.5 ng mL-1 is 97.9% with a SD 1.3, with traces of aldrin, heptachlorepoxide and 4,40-DDD (1.7%) by the CN-Sep-Pak cartridge, while the recovery of chlorinated pesticides at levels of 0.05–0.2 ng mL-1 is 97.4% with a SD 1.5, with traces of hep-dioxin (2.4%) and penta-dioxin (1.0%) by the C18-Sep-Pak cartridge connected ‘‘in series’’ to the CN-Sep-Pak cartridge.
