410-411, pp. Water samples were collected from four jetties and three marine fish farms around the main Langkawi Island and analysed for 18 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in December 2010. B. Wu, Y. Zhang, X.-X. A Toxicological Profile for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons was released in December 1990. 112–118, 2011. JRC 66955 - 2011 PAHs can break down to longer-lasting products by reacting with sunlight and other SUMMARY: Exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons usually occurs by breathing air contaminated by wild fires or coal tar, or by eating foods that have been grilled. The concentrations, composition, sources, and risks of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in topsoil and surface water of the Liuxi River basin, south China were analyzed in this study. This ... the land or in water can be many times higher than the content of PAHs in soil or water. Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) Factsheet . This paper reports the levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the water around the Island and their probable sources. This study, which aimed to investigate the capacity of tea plant uptake and translocation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), was divided into two sections. Environmental Science and Pollution Research 2013 , 20 (4) , 2535-2545. kg-1 was investigated when planting single or mixed species, and enhancing mechanisms were analyzed. Donata Lerda. View at: Publisher Site | Google Scholar The other was to research tea plant leaf uptake of PAHs from air. One was to study tea plant root uptake of PAHs from water and translocation to leaves. 4. th edition .

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in water from the surface microlayer and the subsurface microlayer of the Guangzhou section of the Pearl River were studied in March 2009. Distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in surface water and sediment near a drinking water reservoir in Northeastern China. Zhang, and S.-P. Cheng, “Health risk assessment of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the source water and drinking water of China: quantitative analysis based on published monitoring data,” Science of the Total Environment, vol. The total concentrations of 16 PAHs ranged from 296.26 to 888.14 ng/g in topsoil and from 156.73 to 422.03 ng/L in surface water, indicating mild pollution. PAHs have been found in at least 600 of the 1,430 National Priorities List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
