Every organic substance containing carbon and hydrogen yields a large number of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) during incomplete combustion or pyrolysis or during the formation of petroleum and coal. PAHs are included in a class of chemical compounds characterised by two or more condensed aromatic rings.
