Ground water samples from an industrialised area near Milan were analysed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to identify the main pollutants and to quantify two classes of chemicals: polychloro-1,3-butadienes (PCBD) and some aromatic amines. The water contained several halogenated aromatic and aliphatic compounds and heavy contamination due to PCBD, probably arising from contaminated land where a disused chemical plant is located. All the samples contained low levels of aromatic amines indicating a diffuse contamination probably arising from different sources.
