Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Various polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) at sub-ppm level were identified qualitatively by synchronous scanning fluorescence technique at various wavelength intervals. Due to the difference in chemical structure, each PAHs gives specific characteristic spectrum for each wavelength intervals. This work demonstrated that the synchronous scanning fluorescence method can be used as a tool for the rapid identification of PAHs in ethanolic sample which contain three or six types of PAHs such as fluorene, truxene, benzo(k) fluoranthene, carbazole, chrysene, anthracene, acenaphthene and indeno(1,2,3,cd)pyrene in mixture.
