Abstract

Nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitro-PAHs) are widespread environmental pollutants that are generated by incomplete combustion. Many nitro-PAHs compounds are potential genotoxins and some are direct acting mutagens. Laboratory experiments using PAHs(pyrene, antracene and napthalene) in gas with coexisting nitrogen oxide and oxygen were conducted to elucidate the formation and decomposition behaviors of nitro-PAHs in the heating-reaction tube. It was found that the nitro-PAHs formed in a wide range of temperature from around 200-1000°C, and that the concentrations of most the nitro-PAHs decreased with increasing heating temperature (700-1000°C).
