PEREIRA NETTO, Annibal D. et al. Avaliação da contaminação humana por hidrocarbonetos policíclicos aromáticos (HPAs) e seus derivados nitrados (NHPAs): uma revisão metodológica. Quím. Nova [online]. 2000, vol.23, n.6, pp.765-773. ISSN 0100-4042.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocabons (PAHs) and their nitroderivatives (NPAHs) are ubiquitous in the environment and they are produced in several industrial and combustion processes. Some of these compounds are potent carcinogens/mutagens and their determination in biological samples is an important step for exposure control. A review of the analytical methodologies used for the determination of PAHs and their metabolites in biological samples is presented.

Keywords : polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and nitroderivatives; human contamination; carcinogenic [mutagenic coumpounds].
