    Degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) was investigated by applying different NaNO3 mass at varying pH levels (2.0, 4.0, 6.0 and 8.0) to contaminated soil extract. Results obtained indicated that using 2 g NaNO3, 31.1% of 2-methylnaphthalene was regarded as the overall highest...

    We have studied the interaction between polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (pyrene and anthracene) with human serum albumin (HSA) and human blood plasma. We have shown that the increase in the fluorescence intensity and the decrease in the polarity index of pyrene on going from an aqueous solution...

    Excited singlet ( S1) and triplet ( T1) state quenching by O2 and by (O2 + H2O) gas-vapor mixtures was studied in the gas phase for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs, anthracene, 2-aminoanthracene, pyrene). Addition of water vapor is shown not to influence quenching of both fluorescence and...
