High-temperature fluorescence measurements and instrumentation for polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH): A review

Journal Article (Review;Journal)

This paper provides an overview of high-temperature measurements of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and an assessment of the state-of the art methods and instrumentation that are used for those measurements. This review deals specifically with the fluorescence technique and related measurement methods. The primary emphasis of this review will be placed on the effect of high temperatures on the structural, and photophysical characteristics of PAHs and their resulting effects on the fluorescence spectra of these compounds. Specific examples of these effects and the analytical instrumentation developed and used for these measurements will be discussed and illustrated, as well as the various environments in which these measurements are performed.
