General description

Benzo[a]pyrene belongs to the class of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which can exist as a potent genotoxic compound majorly formed via pyrolysis of organic matter and can also be found in industrial and cigarette smoke, coal tar and food.

Application

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
Benzo[a]pyrene may be used as an analytical standard for the determination of the analyte in olive oil, smoked and cooked food and roasted coffee samples by chromatography techniques.
