Title: Remediation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. (Latest citations from Pollution abstracts). Published Search

The bibliography contains citations concerning the removal of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from contaminated soil or water. The chemical or biological processes that destroy these contaminants or reduce their toxicity are discussed. Techniques include treatments used in above-ground reactors or in situ detoxification of contaminated sites. The citations examine the relationship between the chemical structure of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and rate of decomposition; selection of the most effective microorganisms for biological degradation; and factors which can accelerate or inhibit degradation.(Contains 50-250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
