PINBOARD SUMMARY

Characterization of soil sample is essential in determining the nature and extent of contamination. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a family of ubiquitous environmental contaminants that consist of more than 100 chemicals. Given the pluripotential of PAHs to cause adverse health effects on humans, this investigation studies the correlation of PAHs and various chemical, biological and physical properties of soil with a view to determine its risk potentials.
