Abstract: A CONSIDERABLE NUMBER OF ORGANIC POLLUTANTS ARE KNOWN TO BE MUTAGENIC OR CARCINOGENIC. MANY LABORATORIES AND INSTITUTES WORLDWIDE ARE ACTIVELY INVESTIGATING AND ANALYSING THIS CLASS OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS, POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS AND THEIR DERIVATIVES, WHICH ARE FORMED AND RELEASED BY THE INCOMPLETE COMBUSTION OF ORGANIC MATERIALS. TO FACILITATE THE IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL OF THESE HARMFUL ENVIRONMENTAL AND OCCUPATIONAL POLLUTANTS, THEIR MOLECULAR SPECTRA HAVE BEEN DETERMINED UNDER STANDARDISED CONDITIONS TO BE EDITED AND PUBLISHED IN THE FORM OF A "SPECTRAL ATLAS" (2ND VOL., IN A JOINED ENTERPRISE OF JRC-ISPRA AND THE COMMUNITY BUREAU OF REFERENCE (BRC/DG XII) IN COLLABORATION WITH NATIONAL LABORATORIES OF THE MEMBER STATES. THE PAPER ALSO DISCUSSES DATA RELATED TO IMPORTANT PHYSICO-CHEMICAL PROPERTIES, OCCURRENCE IN THE HUMAN ENVIRONMENT AND HEALTH EFFECTS (MUTAGENIC AND CARCINOGENIC PROPERTIES) OF THESE HAZARDOUS AND UBIQUITOUS POLLUTANTS. THE FIRST VOLUME WAS PUBLISHED IN 1985.
