ABSTRACT
Several phenolic compounds are present in tobacco smoke. They are formed from the pyrolysis of tobacco during the smoking process and all of them are toxic. Therefore, the determination of these compounds in air samples is important. A rapid, simple, and sensitive method using a synchronous spectrofluorimetry technique was developed to quantify hydroquinone and resorcinol simultaneously. One of the advantages of this method is the simple and rapid sampling technique, which uses water as the absorption solution of the analytes in the air sample. The precision of the method (%RSD) was 1.8% and the detection limits were 0.125 mg m-3 and 0.292 mg m-3 for hydroquinone and resorcinol, respectively.
