Methodology of Ambient Air Monitoring for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons

Abstract: In the last decade, several studies of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in ambient air in the U.S. specifically investigated (1) the sampling efficiency of two sorbents for PAH in air: XAD-2 and polyurethane foam (PUP); (2) the storage stability of PAH on quartz fiber filters and the sorbents; (3) the phase distribution of ambient PAH; and (4) total PAH concentrations (in both vapor and particulate phases) in ambient air. This paper summarizes their findings.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through its Office of Research and Development partially funded and managed the research described here under Contract 68-D4-0023 to Battelle. It has been subjected to Agency review and approved for publication.
