Toxic PAH air pollutants from fossil fuels 'multiply' in sunlight

Some 'children' compounds can be more toxic than the 'parent' PAHs

25-Mar-2021

When power stations burn coal, a class of compounds called Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, or PAHs, form part of the resulting air pollution. Researchers have found that PAHs toxins degrade in sunlight into 'children' compounds and by-products. Some 'children' compounds can be more toxic than ...
