The present report attempts to make current the information relative to the sources (both mobile and stationary), formation, atmospheric transformations, biologic effects, and pharmacokinetics of a select group of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and mixtures thereof, to identify populations hypersensitive to them and to determine the human risks associated with exposure to them. The specific PAHs considered were chosen on the basis of relative concentrations in various kinds of emission or combustion products or because of some unique pharmacologic property.
Based on work performed pursuant to Contract 68-01-4655 with the Office of Research and Development of the Environmental Protection Agency. Includes bibliographical references.
