Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are composed of two or more fused aromatic (benzene) rings which contain only carbon and hydrogen. They are converted to derivatives including metabolites such as hydroxyl, quinoid, nitrated and halogenated PAHs. In order to understand their behaviours and toxicities, an understanding of the fundamental chemistry of PAHs and their derivatives is important. This chapter deals with their structure and properties, nomenclature, sources and toxicity.
