Sources, Distribution and Toxicity of Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Particulate Matter

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of organic compounds consisting of two or more fused aromatic rings. PAHs originate mainly from anthropogenic processes, particularly from

Sources, distribution, and health effect of carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) – current knowledge and future directions

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are chemical compounds containing two or more fused benzene rings in linear, angular or cluster arrangement, consisting of only carbon and hydrogen. Polycyclic

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons: Their Global Atmospheric Emissions, Transport, and Lung Cancer Risk

Environmental polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are mainly emitted from incomplete combustion of fuels, waste burning, open biomass burning, and gas leaking in industrial processes. PAHs are of

Levels of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Atmospheric Environment of Urban Areas in Latin America

ABSTRACT Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are chemical compounds considered as pollutants of high priority due to their carcinogenic potential. PAH can appear in water, soil or in the

Revealing the Origin of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in an Urban Snowpack

Polyciclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous pollutants in urban atmosphere. Several PAHs are known carcinogens or are the precursors to carcinogenic daughter compounds. Understanding the

SYNOPSIS Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Soil — a Review

PAHs are mainly produced by combustion processes and consist of a number of toxic compounds. While the concentrations of individual PAHs in soil produced by natural processes (e.g., vegetation fires,

TLDR
Some of the most vigorous research activity related to PAhs has concentrated on refining analytical techniques and on development of a better understanding of PAH-induced mutagenesis and carcinogenesis at a molecular level.
