Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, many of which are potent human carcinogens, occur widely in the environment as a result of incomplete combustion of organic matter. This volume was the first to review the chemical properties of these carcinogens and to relate their carcinogenic activity to their metabolic by-products within the by: Purchase Polycyclic hydrocarbons and cancer - 1st Edition.

Polycyclic hydrocarbons Item Preview remove-circle Share or Embed This : The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) have been reviewed previously as components of atmospheric pollution and as potential human-health hazards. This document attempts to make current the information on the sources, formation, atmospheric persistence and transformations, biologic effects, and toxicokinetics of a select group of PAHs and.
This reference book provides an overview of the field of polycyclic aromatic (benzenoid) hydrocarbons, grouped into a systematic framework for the first : Jerry Dias. Polycyclic Hydrocarbons and Cancer, Volume 3 explores the link between polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and cancer based on research in the fields of chemistry, biology, and the medical and social sciences. At the same time this information is of great value to the oil and gas industry. The book "Hydrocarbon" is comprised of 9 chapters, covering different topics: from origin of hydrocarbons to the method for hydrocarbon exploration. Distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in soil and their influence to environment are also discussed. Chapter 21 • Hydrocarbons Section Introduction to Hydrocarbons MAIN Idea Hydrocarbons are carbon-containing organic compounds that provide a source of energy and raw materials. Real-World Reading Link If you have ridden in a car or a bus, you have used.
Polycyclic hydrocarbons are of interest in many fields of science: theoretical chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, dyestuff chemistry and biology. With regards to the latter, I am indebted to Dr. Regina Schoental of the Medical Research Council for the review in this present work ofBrand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. J.P. Meador, in Encyclopedia of Ecology, This article examines the ecotoxicological effects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The intent was to provide a general overview of the relevant ecotoxicological studies for these ubiquitous compounds and to provide basic information on environmental chemistry, sources, basic ecotoxicological methods, and important controlling factors. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This volume concerns sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), their emission factors, and relative importance. It deals with exposure, uptake, metabolism, and detection of PAH in the human body. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, many of which have been identified as potent human carcinogens, occur widely in the environment as a result of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels and other organic matter. Major sources of emissions are wood and coal burning, automobiles, heat and power plants, and refuse volume reviews the chemistry of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and.
