Abstract: Human exposure to elevated levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and trace organic compounds (e.g. PCB, OCP, PBDE) can be related to negative health effects. This raises demands of exposure measurements to be performed. Passive air samplers (PAS) are simple and cheap sampling options that may be useful tools for exposure screening of large populations. They can also enable frequent monitoring. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate and increase the understanding of PAS methods to sam... more
