||A gas chromatographic procedure was used for the detection of blood and urinary levels of aromatic hydrocarbons (AH) in 151 workers from three industries: the pharmaceutical industry, photogravure printing and office work. A dynamic head-space purge and trap preconcentration and flame ionization detection were utilized. In the first two categories of the occupationally exposed workers, blood AH levels were of 2-4 orders of magnitude higher than in the environmentally exposed subjects of the third category. In this latter group (office workers) there was a significant difference in blood and urine AH levels between nonsmokers and smokers.
