POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS: A REVIEW
Lawal, A.T. and P. Fantke.
Cogent Environmental Science 3(1):1339841(2017)

The authors present a review of recent literature that addresses PAHs toxicity and biomonitoring in air, water, soil, sediment, and waste sludge. Sample preparation, such as PAHs extraction, and analytical methods used, are also reviewed with commentary on developments in direct measurement techniques, such as UV absorption spectrometry and synchronous luminescence. In addition, biological and physico-chemical factors that influence PAHs degradation and remediation are discussed. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/23311843.2017.1339841
