Abstract

Continuous release of xenobiotic chemicals to a human environment increasingly predisposes society to significant health-related risks due to their toxicity and long-term presence in the environment. Naturally occurring and manufactured polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are categorized based on their teratogenic, mutagenic and carcinogenic properties (Acevedo F, Pizzul L, Castillo Mdel P, Cuevas R, Diez MC; J Hazard Mater 185(1):212–219, 2011). Longevity of PHAs in the environment directly depends on their low solubility in water, vapor pressures and high octanol/water partitioning coefficients (Bogan BW, Lamar RT; Appl Environ Microbiol 61(7):2631–2635, 1995).
