Sodium dodecyl sulphate, hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide and polyoxyethylene(23) lauryl ether were investigated as mobile phases in the micellar liquid chromatography of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons of environmental concern. A wide range of surfactant concentrations were used and the retention parameters and distribution coefficients calculated. The trends in the retention data for the PAHs are discussed and several conclusions are presented concerning the partition coefficients when these surfactants are present in the mobile phase. Comparisons are made between the structural features of the compounds and their capacity factors, and the octanol/water partition coefficients are correlated with hydrophobicity for the PAHs studied.
