Stable carbon isotopic ratio measurement of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons as a tool for source identification and apportionment--a review of analytical methodologies.


The measurement of the ratio of stable isotopes of carbon ((13)C/(12)C expressed as a δ(13)C) in the individual components of a sample may be used as a means to identify the origin of these components. This article reviews the approaches and reports on the successes and failures of source identification and apportionment of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons… (More)
