Abstract

The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in urine were analyzed using analytic method of solid phase extraction (SPE). The urine samples were spiked with 9 carbon-13 labeled standards which were hydrolyzed by β- glucuronidase/arylsulfatase. The solutions were blown in an evaporator and extracts were reconstituted in toluene. The method detection limits (MDL) ranged from 2 ng/L for 1-hydroxypyrene to 43.5 ng/L for 1-hydroxynaphthalene which produced good specificity, precision, linearity and recovery.
