Polycyclic aromatic compounds represent the largest class of suspected chemical carcinogens. This volume reviews established and new techniques for analysis of PAC's, including both homocyclic and heterocyclic species, and PAC mixtures. Presented are the latest experimental procedures, along with new developments in instrumentation. Topics covered include photoionization spectroscopy, photothermal spectroscopy, and immunoadsorbant techniques.
