This paper describes a simple and rapid sample preparation procedure allowing to measure the stable carbon isotopic composition of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in petroleum and in sediments. The aromatic fraction is first purified and isolated on alumina and silica micro-columns. A high-performance liquid chromatography fractionation allows one then to isolate each aromatic family in order to limit coelutions between PAHs. Moreover, this purification step reduces the importance of… CONTINUE READING
