The compounds mainly fall into the following 12 aromatic hydrocarbon series: naphthalene (m/z 128, m/z 142, m/z 156, m/z 170, m/z 184, m/z 198), phenanthrene (m/z 178, m/z 192, m/z 206, m/z 220), benzopyrene (m/z 252), fluoranthene (m/z 202, m/z 216), dibenzothiophene (m/z 184, m/z 198, m/z 212, m/z 226), benzonaphthothiophene (m/z 234), dibenzofuran (m/z 168, m/z 182, m/z 196), fluorene (m/z 166, m/z 180, m/z 194), chrysene (m/z 228, m/z 242, m/z 256), biphenyl (m/z 154, m/z 168, m/z 182), triaromatic sterane (m/z 231) and benzohopane (m/z 191).
EPA PAH including naphthalene, acenaphthylene, acenaphthene, fluorene, phenanthrene, anthracene, fluoranthene, pyrene, benzo[a]anthrancene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, benzo[p]pyrene, dibenz[a,h]anthracene, benzo [g,h,i]perylene, indenol[1,2,3-cd] pyrene were analyzed.
Some PAHs have been classified as priority pollutants [9]; sixteen of the common or so "unsubstituted" PAHs, naphthalene, acenaphthylene, acenaphthene, fluorene, phenanthrene, anthracene, fluoranthene, pyrene, benzo[a]anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, benzo[a]pyrene, dibenz[a,h]anthracene, benzo[g,h,i]perylene, and indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene, typically analyzed in standard contract laboratory scans have been listed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA).

In the case of the EQS, new priority substances are also added to an annex and standards for certain existing priority substances are changed (anthracene, brominated diphenyl ethers, fluoranthene, lead and its compounds, naphthalene, nickel and its compounds and polyaromatic hydrocarbons).
The objective of this work is to characterize online the grafting degree of MAH on PP and the total conversion of MAH by measuring the fluorescence quenching of fluoranthene by MAH in the melted PP during the reactive extrusion process.
Arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, potassium, vanadium, and zinc among metals; and anthracene, phenanthrene, pyrene, fluoranthene, chrysene, benz(a)anthracene, benzo(b)fluoranthene, benzo(a)pyrene, benzo(k)fluoranthene, indeno (1,2,3-cd) pyrene, benzo (g,h,i) perylene, and dibenz (a,h) anthracene among PAHs were frequently detected, while other metals and lightweight PAHs were less so.
The calibration was conducted with naphtalene, acenaphtylene, phenanthrene, fluoranthene and pyrene standards (Aldrich Chemical Comp.
