Compositional Pattern and Human Exposure Risk of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Fine Dust from Indoor Environments in Port Harcourt, Nigeria

Indoor fine dusts in residential buildings, public buildings and vehicles from Port Harcourt, Nigeria were assessed for their polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) concentrations, compositional patterns, and human exposure risks. The PAHs in the dust samples were quantified by gas chromatograph equipped with mass spectrometry (GC-MS) after extraction by ultra-sonication with hexane/dichloromethane/acetone and cleaned up on a silica gel/alumina column.
