Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH)

Polycyclic aromatic compounds (PAH) are a very large number of naturally occurring and man-made chemicals. The pure compounds are white or yellowish crystalline solids. They are insoluble in water but dissolve readily in fats and oils. Well-known PAHs are the compounds benzo[a]pyrene, fluoranthene, naphthaline or anthracene.
