Abstract

QUIJANO PARRA, Alfonso  and  MELENDEZ GELVEZ, Iván. IDENTIFICATION OF POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS (PAHS) AIR-CUCUTA NORTE DE SANTANDER: GENOTOXIC EVALUATIONIDENTIFICAÇÃO DE HIDROCARBONETO DE POLICÍCLICOS AROMÁTICOS (HAPS) NO AR DE CÚCUTA-COLÔMBIA: EFEITO GEN TÓXICO. Rev.EIA.Esc.Ing.Antioq [online]. 2014, n.21, pp.79-87. ISSN 1794-1237.

The study of human exposure to combustion emissions, including ultrafine particulate matter (PM2,5) has increased recently in the thirld world countries, including those in Latin America. This paper identifies a group of polyciclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the city of Cúcuta, Colombia. Those PAHs are recognized by their effects on human health. PAHs found were: Methylchrysene, Benzo[a]anthracene, Benzo[j]fluoranthene, Benzo[b]fluoranthene, Benzo[a]pyrene, dibenzo[a, l]pyrene, dibenzo[a, e]pyrene, Benzo[c]fluorene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene, dibenzo[a, h]anthracene and benzo[g, hi]perylene. The genotoxic effect of the particulate matter extracted with acetone and dichlorometane, was also evaluated in vitro using the commet assay.

Keywords : PM2.5; PAHs; Benzo (a) pyrene; Gas Chromatography; Comet Assay.
