About this book

The volumes, 3/I and 3/J, present a modern account of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and their heterocyclic analogs in the environment. The authors are internationally well recognized scientists belonging to those working presently in the frontline of the different subfields of this interdisciplinary area of environmental science; they give an integrated thorough overview on this hot topic. Extensive cross-referencing between chapters provides the readers with an easy access to all major areas. Due to the huge amount of material the text is published in two volumes (3/I and 3/J). It is expected that both volumes will soon become a major source of information and inspiration for all researchers actively working in PAH environmental chemistry or ecology.


Microbial Metabolism of PAHs and Heteroarenes.- Mechanisms of Tumor Initiation by Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Mammals.- Analysis of PAH-DNA Aduccts - Fluorescence Line-Narrowing Spectroscopy.- Mass Specrometry Techniques: DNA Adducts of PAHs and Related Carcinogens.- Bioavailability and Ecotoxicity of PAHs.- Biotransformation of PAHs and Their Carcinogenic Effects in Fish.- A Critical Review of the Application of Toxic Equivalency Factors to Carcinogenic Effects of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Mammals.
