  • Analyzing Chemicals and Genes Yields Novel Insight into PAH Behavior
    Research Brief - July 2021
    A new NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP)-funded study revealed how polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) breakdown and transform in the presence of ultraviolet A (UVA) light and titanium dioxide nanoparticle pollutants. Their findings have important implications for PAH cleanup, which may not consider how PAHs transform in diverse environments.
  • PAH cleanup may worsen toxicity
    Environmental Factor - October 2018
    According to research by Staci Simonich, Ph.D., some of the products formed during the breakdown of pollutants called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) may be more toxic than the original compounds.
