An instrument for real-time monitoring of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) on airborne fine particles was evaluated for use in indoor and ambient air measurements. The instrument is based on photoelectric ionization of surface PAH, loss of the photoelectrons, and subsequent measurement of the remaining positively charged particles in a filter electrometer. The instrument performed well in a variety of field situations. (Copyright (c) 1994 Gordon and Breach Science Publishers S.A.)
