The objective of the study was to characterize the polar components, mainly polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) derivatives, in air samples and to determine whether these compounds are from sampling artifacts or from the sampled air. A literature survey was conducted to review the studies about polar PAH derivatives found in the air. In general, there is limited chemical and biological information for polar PAH available in the literature. The polar fractions of air samples did show a significant amount of mutagenic activity. More studies are needed in the area to determine the polar components responsible for the activity.
