Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (PACs) are an important class of carcinogenic environmental pollutants, which occur in air, water, soils, sediments, in food and in the workplace. Because many hundreds of closely related isomers are being formed and released into the environment from combustion processes of fossil fuels and other organic materials, their control presents a difficult task. This third volume in the series of spectral atlases provides details of molecular spectra, physico-chemical properties, occurrence and biological activity for 59 additional compounds. In addition, a special section reviews the individual literature on the effects of approximately 150 PAC substances in the water environment.
