solid-surface luminescence

Application of Solid-surface Luminescence for Determination Indicator Coefficients of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons

Luminescence of PAH (anthracene, phenanthrene, pyrene, fluoranthene, benzo(a)anthracene, chrysene, benzo(a)pyrene) in aqueous media and in the solid phase of cellulose diacetate is investigated. It is established that solid surface luminescence (SSL) analysis increases the detection sensitivity of PAH in water without extraction and preconcentration with organic solvents, an exception is chrysene. The spectral characteristics show SSL-method to be using for detection of indicator isomers pairs of PAH.
