    Abstract

    The development of sensitive and specific analytical methodology for the determination of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) content of aqueous samples is critical to studies defining the discharge, distribution, persistence, and fate of PAHs in the aqueous environment. Multicomponent PAH analysis methods developed in this laboratory for freshwater streams and rivers and the application of these methods to samples from the aqueous environment around a coal coking plant are discussed.
