Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs), and biphenyls (PCBs) were detected in sediments from Suzhou Creek with mean concentrations of 478.1, 245.1, and 4727.6 pg/g dw, respectively. WHO-TEQ concentrations of PCDD/Fs in sediments ranged from 2.90 to 13.96 pg/g dw, while TEQ concentrations of PCBs varied from 0.27 to 1.41 pg/g dw. OCDD or HpCDD were the dominant congeners but PeCDF or HpCDD was the major contributor to PCDD/Fs-TEQ in all the sites. For dioxinlike biphenyls, PCB 118 was the major congener while PCB-TEQ was attributable to PCB 126 in all the samples.
