Detection of benzo(a)pyrene photodegradation products using DNA electrochemical sensors.

The reactivity of photodegradation products of benzo(a)pyrene vs. DNA has been assessed using both genomic and oligonucleotide based DNA electrochemical sensors. The kinetic of a photooxidation reaction of benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) carried out in controlled conditions using a 6 W UV lamp peaked at 365 nm has been studied using LC with fluorimetric detection… CONTINUE READING
