Screening air samples for polynuclear aromatic compounds: a field study.
The use of simple and cost-effective luminescence techniques for screening air-particulate samples is described. Two analytical methods, synchronous luminescence and room-temperature phosphorescence, are employed to monitor the content of polynuclear aromatic species in air particulate extracts collected at a woodburning community. The validity and efficacy of this cost-effective screening approach are demonstrated via comparison of the screening data with results obtained by detailed gas-chromatography/mass-spectrometry analysis.-from STAR, 21(22), 1983
