The metabolism and activation of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons has been reviewed and the original contributions made to this area by Professor E. Boyland have been placed in context. The reactions involved in the formation, via epoxides, of hydroxylated derivatives have been outlined and conjugations with glucuronic and sulphuric acids and with glutathione have been discussed. Examples of secondary hydroxylation reactions have been given and the possible role that phenolic hydroxyl… CONTINUE READING
