Exposure to air particulate matter (PM) is estimated to cause 5000 premature deaths in Sweden annually. Carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) are considered to play an important role in the adverse effects induced by PM. A sub group of PAC is polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)  This project focuses on identification and determination of  PAH in environmental matrixes.
