Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in suspended particulate matter (SPM) contribute significantly to health risk. Our objectives were to assess the size distribution and sources of 26 PAHs and 11 polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) in Cited by: n-Alkanes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were identified in particle-sized aerosols of the urban and rural atmospheres of Guangzhou, of the organic compounds were mainly associated with fine particles with aerodynamic diameters less than μm in the urban and rural by:

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were measured near Interst just east of Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA. The goals of this project were to ascertain whether a sufficient quantity of PAHs could be collected using low flow ( L/minute) over 8-h periods and if so, do investigate how the PAHs correlate to local sources, atmospheric pollutants and Author: Dennis K.

Nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nPAHs) are ubiquitous environmental pollutants, which exhibits higher toxicity than their corresponding parent PAHs (pPAHs).Recent studies demonstrated that the nPAHs could represent major soil pollution, however the remediation of nPAHs has been rarely this study, biological, physical, and chemical methods have .

Among these compounds, the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are semivolatile species formed trough the fusion of two or more benzene rings by a pyrolitic process during the incomplete combustion of carbonaceous by: 6.

Airborne Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) in Bangkok Urban Air: Part II. Level and Distribution Article (PDF Available) in Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds 18(3).

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Urban aters 3 discharges, stormwater runoff, landfill leachate, and surface runoff. Many studies have been conducted recently regarding runoff sources of PAHs. Rainfall runs off parking lot and road surfaces, transporting PAHs that originate from tire particles, leaking motor oil, vehicle exhaust.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were measured in environmental samples (sponges, fish and sediment) collected in and from the Faroe-Shetland Channel and Rosemary Bank Seamount. 3 atmospheric transformations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS: PERSISTENCE AND TRANSFORMATIONS OF PAHs The atmospheric persistence of PAHs has received considerable attention in recent years and continues to be actively investigated.

Nine polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and four nitropolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (NPAHs) in the extracts from the particulates were analysed by HPLC with fluorescence and chemiluminescence detections, by: The temporal variations and major sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) intrinsic to PM10 were investigated over a tropical urban atmosphere on.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a large group of organic compounds with two or more fused aromatic rings. They have a relatively low solubility in water, but are highly lipophilic. Most of the PAHs with low vapour pressure in the air are adsorbed on particles.

When dissolved in water or adsorbed on particulate matter, PAHs can undergo Cited by: A wide range of aromatic compounds has benzene rings located in ortho positions. These are called condensed or fused rings.

Aromatic compounds with two or more fused aromatic benzene rings are called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and they have the general formula C 4r+2 H 2r+4 for rings without substituents, where r = number of rings. Although the emphasis of this report is on the identification of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) emitted from motor vehicles, PAHs are ubiquitous substances.

They are found in terrestrial and aquatic plants, in soils and bottom sediments, in fresh and marine waters, in emission from volcanoes and naturally occurring forest fires, and in the products of. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and carbonyls compounds are becoming a major component of atmospheric toxic air pollutants (TAPs) in Hong Kong.

Many studies in Hong Kong show that traffic emission is one of the most significant contributors in urban area of Hong by: Nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon concentrations and sources in urban and suburban atmospheres of the Mid-Atlantic region May Atmospheric Environment 37(15) Sixteen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) were measured in total suspended particulate matter (TSPM) samples collected at an urban and industrial cum residential site in Agra (India) from December to December The average total PAH concentration was found to be ± 17 ng m The mea.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) partition from the atmosphere to vegetation, soil, water, and sediment. In an effort to quantitate vegetation's ability to scavenge PAH, we collected vegetation samples from urban, suburban, and rural locations during the summer and fall of and determined PAH burdens (ng/cm2) on a mass per total leaf surface area basis.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are extensively studied compounds, and have been studied for a long time (Wang et al., ). They are considered hazardous air pollutants in the group of non-halogenated organic compounds along with benzene, phenols, aldehydes, etc. PAHs exist in the atmosphere inFile Size: KB.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) among the urban air toxics are of global concern due to their multiple effects on human population. Attention is more importantly on PAHs bound to PM and ultrafine fraction of the airborne particulates that are reportedly known for their higher health risk [1, 2].Cited by: This is the first estimation of the contribution of ultrafine particles to the lung deposition of particle-bound polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the atmosphere.

The size distributions of nine PAHs (4−6 rings) were measured at roadside and suburban sites in winter in Japan. Deposition efficiencies and fluxes of PAHs in ultrafine mode (Cited by: [1] Eighteen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were simultaneously measured in surface seawater and boundary layer air from the North Pacific toward the Arctic Ocean during the Fourth Chinese National Arctic Research Expedition in the summer of Atmospheric Σ 18 PAH ranged from to pg m −3, with the highest concentrations observed in the Cited by: Vehicle exhaust is a major source of exposure to Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) found in the urban atmosphere.
