Multicomponent Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Analysis of Inland Water and Sediment
Many polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) exhibit considerable carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic activity. Methods for reliable identification and quantification of PAHs in the aqueous environment are important for assessment of the potential environmental impact of processes releasing such compounds in aqueous discharges. This paper reports the development of multicomponent PAH analytical methods for inland water and sediment.
