Abstract
La contaminación ambiental es un grave problema mundial que actualmente preocupa a la comunidad internacional. Las grandes ciudades industrializadas, como la de México, son las más contaminadas. Sin embargo, la contaminación llega hasta zonas alejadas de donde se produce y afecta los ecosistemas. La contaminación es responsable de una alarmante y creciente lista de enfermedades en el hombre, los animales y las plantas. Los bifenilos policlorados (PCB) se catalogaron dentro de los 12 contaminantes orgánicos más tóxicos para los organismos vivos. Sus propiedades físicas hicieron que se usaran ampliamente en la industria. No son biodegradables y se acumulan en el a...
