LC/CMS Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHS) in Water (EPA 610 Mix)

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are neutral compounds containing multiple aromatic fused rings that are present in fossil fuels and can be formed from the incomplete combustion of organic material. In recent years, it has been well documented that several PAHs can be potentially carcinogenic via exposure or ingestion. The EPA has classified seven PAHs (benzo[a]pyrene, benz[a]anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, dibenz[a,h]anthracene, and indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene) as Group B2, probable human carcinogens(1,2).
