This study was conducted to measure the residual PCBs in sediments of 4 great rivers in Korea by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. From the results, PCBs were positively detected in all samples. The residue levels of total PCBs in sediments in near of SS and OS were $290.87{\mu}g/kg$ and $221.11{\mu}g/kg$, respectively. The PCBs contamination may be in association with total organic compound (TOC) in sediments. Congener 66, 74, 90, 101, 105, 110, 118, 138, 149, 153, 180, 187 as IUPAC No were predominant species found in sediments and the polyCBs detected most aboundantly in sediments were tetraCBs and pentaCBs. From the study, it appears that the PCBs contamination in sediments of 4 great rivers is not serious and the analysis from enough many sites is needed for the next survey.
