Short-Term Carcinogenesis and Mutagenesis Bioassays of Mobile-Source Emissions

  • Joellen Lewtas Huisingh
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 22)

Abstract

The combustion emissions from mobile sources, including both gases and particles, are very complex and may have thousands of separate components. Qualitative and quantitative identification of all of these individual components is a tremendous task. The analytical challenge is facilitated if the number of compounds requiring identification can be reduced.
