Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
This chapter is from the book Chromatographic Analysis of the Environment (3rd Edition), a detailed handbook on different chromatographic analysis techniques and chromatographic data for compounds found in air, water, soil, and sludge.
Taking on a new perspective from previous editions, this third edition discusses the parameters of each environmental compartment in a consistent format that highlights preparation techniques, chromatographic separation methods, and detection methods. Most of the data are compiled in tables and figures to elucidate the text as needed. Separate chapters approach specific aspects of sampling methods especially designed for environmental purposes, quantification of environmental analytes in difficult matrices, and data handling. The second part of the book focuses on the analysis of hazardous chemicals in the environment, including volatile organic carbons (VOCs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). In addition, the authors feature information on compounds such as phosphates, organic acids, halogenated VOCs, amines, and n-nitirosamines, isocyanates, phthalate esters, and humic substances.
