Abstract

Some of the direct microbial mutagenic activity of diesel particulate matter has been assigned to the presence of nitro derivatives of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. A number of researchers have suggested that these compounds may be produced during sample collection. This paper discusses their formation on the basis of simple chemical kinetic and collision phenomena.
