Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
Environmental Behavior and Toxicity in East Asia

Polcyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) and Nitropolycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (NPAHs) are ubiquitous environmental pollutants. This book focuses on the environmental behavior and toxicity of PAHs and NPAHs in Asia, especially Far-East Asia due to the massive consumption of fossil fuel in China. High concentrations of PM2.5 was reported in Beijing since January 2013. And exposure to such high concentrations may cause respiratory, cardiac and lung diseases. It is composed of the following 7 sections: Fundamental Chemistry and General Characteristics; Analytical Methods; Emission Source and Atmospheric Behavior; Atmospheric PAHs, NPAHs and PM2.5; PAHs in Marine Environments; Metabolic Activation/Toxicities; Environmental Standards and Guidelines. This volume, written by many international experts, provides a valuable reference guide for global researchers and students in learning from the East Asian experience.
