In this study the surface sediments of Malacca River (3 Stations) and Prai River (3 Stations) were analyzed to identify the distributions of PAHs. The concentrations of PAHs were quantified using Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometer (GC–MS). Total PAH concentrations varied from 716 to 1210 and 1102 to 7938 ng g−1dw in sediments of Malacca and Prai Rivers, respectively. The concentrations of PAHs in sediments were classified as moderate in sediments of Malacca and high to very high level of… CONTINUE READING
