Extraction of Sediment using the SpeedExtractor E-916 for the Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH)

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are chemical compounds that consist of fused aromatic rings and do not contain heteroatoms or carry substituents. PAHs occur in oil, coal and tar produced by cal carbonization, but not in bitumen. They can also be found in grilled meat, cigarette smoke and automobile exhaust. PAHs are persistent, ubiquitous and some of them have carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic properties.
