Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are hydrophobic environmental contaminants with petrogenic, biogenic, and pyrogenic sources. Alkylated PAH predominate in crude oils, are found in sediment downstream of pulp and paper mills, and can be more toxic than their non-alkylated homologues. The enzymatic metabolism of alkyl phenanthrenes generates ring and chain hydroxylated derivatives. The main objective of this research was to estimate the potential role of hydroxylation in PAH toxicity and… CONTINUE READING
