Methodology for the Isolation of Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons for Qualitative, Quantitative, and Bioassay Studies
Sources of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in the environment generally also contain heteroatom analogues of PAH. These 0- and N-PAH also contribute to air pollution (Dong et al, 1977; Lao et al, 1975) and are found along with S-PAH, such as dibenzo-thiophene, in petroleum (McKay et al, 1976) and coal-derived fuels (Sharley, 1976). They often interfere in the analyses of PAH because of similar chromatographic characteristics. Therefore, in choosing a method for the analysis of PAH in an environmental sample, it is important to consider the source of the PAH and the possible presence of heteroatom aromatics.
