The volumes 3/I (Chemistry) and 3/J (Biology) present diverse aspects of the environmental chemistry and ecology of PAHs and related compounds. Emphasis has been placed on a wide range of aspects not generally covered in other presentations. They cover not only basic aspects of the chemistry, analysis, sources, physico-chemical determinants of environmental distribution, and dissemination of PAHs, but also important areas such as heteroarenes, and PAHs produced from naturally occurring alicyclic precursors. Atmospheric degradation and transformation of PAHs are discussed as well as microbial metabolism of both PAHs and heteroarenes. Conventional and important new aspects of mammalian metabolism and the induction of cancer are presented, and the procedures used for demonstrating the structure of adducts involving PAH metabolites are discussed in detail.
