Description

General description

3-Nitrofluoranthene (3-NFA) is a nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (nitro-PAH). It is an air pollutant present in diesel exhaust and also in some xerographic toners and copies. Vibrational spectra of 3-NFA has been analyzed by FT-IR and density functional theory calculations. Detection of 3-NFA in suspended particulate matter has been reported by liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection. Carcinogenicity of 3-nitrofluoranthene in male F344/DuCrj rats has been studied. Voltammetric determination of 3-nitrofluoranthene in mixed methanol-water solutions by differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) at boron doped diamond thin-film electrode (BDDE) has been described. Analysis of 3-nitrofluoranthene, by HPLC separation and with electrochemiluminescence detection (ECL) has been reported.
