Title Certain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heterocyclic compounds.
Bibliographic information IARC monographs on the evaluation of carcinogenic risk of chemicals to man, Vol.3. International Agency for Research on Cancer, 150 cours Albert Thomas, 69008 Lyon, France, 1973. 271p. 1002 ref. Price: SF.18.00.
Abstract A series of 17 monographs consisting of data reviewed and evaluated by an international group of experts (Lyon, 5-11 Dec. 1972). Individual monographs are devoted to: benz(a)anthracene, benzo(b)fluoranthene, benzo(j)fluoranthene, benzo(a)pyrene, benzo(e)pyrene, chrysene, dibenz(a,h)anthracene, dibenzo(h,rst)pentaphene, dibenzo(a,e)pyrene, dibenzo(a,h)pyrene, dibenzo(a,i)pyrene, dibenzo(a,l)pyrene, indenopyrene, benz(c)acridine, dibenz(a,h)acridine, dibenz(a,j)acridine and 7H-dibenzo(c,g)carbazole. The historical development of knowledge concerning polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and environmental exposures to them are considered separately from the monographs.
