Abstract

The aim of the research is the development of new biomarkers of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) exposure, namely the determination of unmetabolised compounds in urine. Urine samples were obtained from 24 workers exposed to bitumen fumes and from 6 workers exposed to diesel exhaust. The results show that, even at low levels of PAH exposure, urinary PAH are suitable for discriminating the two groups and, also, samples obtained before and after the work shift.
