PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls): Synthetic hydrocarbon compounds widely used in the electronics and similar industries beginning in the 1930s. Most PCBs were restricted or banned during the 1970s and 1980s. However PCBs persist in the environment as a result of their resistance to decomposition and long half-life.
