Abstract - Groundwater pollution by polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons and risk evaluation
The pollution of groundwater by polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAR's) represents an important problem, especially some of these pollutants have a carcinogen activity. The investigation and the analysis of several series of samples have been measured by Chromatography (HPLC and GC-MS). A high level of pollution by PAR's has been observed, as well as the nature of their derivatives has been investigated and discussed.
