Handbook of Chromatography provides a detailed description of significant aspects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The sources, occurrence, nomenclature, and carcinogenicity of PAHs are covered, and a comprehensive record of data of sample preparation, detection, separation, determination, and characterization of PAHs by liquid chromatography is presented. The book also summarizes extraction and enrichment procedures (e.g., Soxhlet extraction, ultrasonic extraction, liquid-liquid partitioning); presents data from paper chromatography, thin-layer chromatography, high-performance thin-layer chromatography, and electrophoresis of PAHs; and discusses the methodology and applications of extrography in analyzing complex aromatic materials.
Handbook of Chromatography also provides a PAHs book directory and a list of suppliers of PAHs and HPLC columns. The volume will be an essential reference for analytical chemists, environmental toxicologists, organic chemists, biomedical specialists, and biotechnicians.
