Woodburning as a source of atmospheric polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons


Woodburning as a source of atmospheric polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons



Environmental Science and Technology 24(10): 1581-1585



ISSN/ISBN: 0013-936X

DOI: 10.1021/es00080a019

Airborne particulate matter containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons derived from burning natural vegetation and paper products in a variety of ways was collected and analyzed by HPLC. Similar profiles of compounds resulted from most of the combustion sources that do not involve fossil fuels and that are likely to contribute to Sydney's atmospheric particulates. In addition, the profiles did not change markedly as a result of reactions occurring in the atmosphere or from reactions occurring on the filter after collection. Concentrations of benzo[a]pyrene and coronene were higher in the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons derived from bush fires than from other sources. Bush fires are likely to be a significant source of exposure of the Sydney population to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
