Pentachlorophenol (PCP) in aqueous extracts of paper and board

Pentachlorophenol (PCP, CAS 87-86-5) is a compound that is used as a pesticide and a wood preservative. It is listed as a persistent organic pollutant in Annex I of the EU POPs Regulation, and must therefore not be used in products and materials.

This analysis is used to determine the pentachlorophenol content in an aqueous extract of pulp, paper, or board.

Though the test was developed for food contact materials, it applies to all kinds of pulp, paper, and board.
