Identification and quantification of polynuclear aromatic compounds in synthoil by room-temperature phosphorimetry


Journal Article

Room-temperature phosphorimetry (r.t.p.) is used to identify and quantify polynuclear aromatic compounds in a synthetic fuel (Synthoil). Several trace and major components, benzo[a]pyrene, chrysene, fluorenes, fluoranthene, phenanthrene, and pyrene, have been identified and determined at concentrations ranging from tens to thousands of parts-per-million. The selectivity of the r.t.p. analysis is greatly improved by using selective heavy-atom perturbation and synchronous excitation scanning. © 1980, All rights reserved.
