  • Abstract

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons ( luorine ne, acenaphtene, acenaphtelene, luorine, phenanthrene, anthracene, fluoranthene, pyrene, benzo[a]anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, benzo[a]pyrene, dibenzo[a,h]anthracene, benzo[g,h,i]perylene and indeno[1,2,3-c,d]pyrene) have been analyzed in seawater sampled on five sites of the Lebanese coast (Tripoli, Akkar, Batroun, Jbeil and Beirut) between February and June 2018. HPLC technique, with UV detector, following liquid-liquid extraction, is the method chosen to detect, analyze and quantify these compounds, because of its specificity and its sensitivity.
