Which analysis methods are suitable for analysis of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons?

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH’s) consists of fused aromatic rings without heteroatoms or substituent groups. These are environmental contaminants resulting from incomplete combustion of fossil fuels such as coal and oil used for heating, cooking and industrial processes. PAH’s are found in oil, coal and tar deposits and also in edible oils, roasted and smoked meat, […]

Dioxins and Furans- An analytical challenge to the Environmental Chemist

Dioxins and Furans are generated during various industrial processes such as manufacture of herbicides, pulp and paper industry and combustion processes such as coal fired power generation, cement kiln, copper smelter or municipal waste incineration. Volcanic eruptions and forest fires also contribute to dioxin production. Dioxin and furans are dangerous by- products of natural and […]
