Abstract Perylene and benzo[ a ]pyrene concentration changes during the gradual increase of thermal maturity have been analyzed for the Palaeogene Podhale flysh deposits and other Palaeozoic to Cenozoic sedimentary rock samples. Perylene is present in high relative concentration in the samples of maturation below 0.6% of the vitrinite reflectance (R r ), while in the range of 0.6%–0.7% R r its abundance rapidly decreased. In the case of samples with vitrinite reflectance higher than 0.7% R r… CONTINUE READING
