Title Nitro derivatives of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the environment
Original title Nitrowe pochodne wielopierścieniowych węglowodorˇw aromatycznych w środowisku [in Polish]
Bibliographic information Mar. 2003, No.3, p.17-20. Illus. 9 ref.
Abstract Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and their nitro derivatives (nitro-PAHs) are present in the environment. They are derived from products of natural origin, and are also formed as a result of thermal processes. These compounds are classified as harmful, carcinogenic and mutagenic. They pollute the atmosphere, the workplace air and various other parts of the environment.
