Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are one of the most widespread organic pollutants. PAHs are made up of fused aromatic rings and are formed during the combustion of carbon based fuels (wood, coal, diesel), as well as being present in crude oil. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has classified seven PAH compounds as being potentially carcinogenic including benz[a]anthracene, benzo[a]pyrene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, chrysene, dibenz[a,h]anthracene, and indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene.
