About this book

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), or polyarenes, are one of the largest and most structurally diverse class of organic molecules known. Although the industrial world is dependent for energy on fossil sources containing them, they are widespread pollutants. This book reviews our knowledge of the effects PAHs have in different environments and habitats.
