The report discusses methods of measuring polycyclic organic matter (POM) for environmental assessment. It describes two fluorescence methods of estimating total POM levels in samples. Either method may be used to screen samples for further specific analyses. It also describes three gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) methods for measuring specific POM compounds. The use of liquid crystal chromatographic phases is recommended for measuring a few POMs; e.g., specifically for benzo(a)pyrene. It discusses GC/MS methods for a wide range of POMs for both capillary and packed GC columns. The three methods for specific POM identification have been verified with collected environmental samples for different kinds.
