The paper describes the development and status of a previously described spot test utilizing sensitized fluorescence for the detection and semi-quantitative estimation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. It also gives data from further laboratory investigation. A series of aromatic hydrocarbon heterocyclic compounds and related substituted compounds were tested to further define test limitations. Data from application of the test to a series of industrial and energy sources are also presented. The test is rapid, very inexpensive, quite sensitive, and reliable.
