Paper Abstract

A solid-state two-dimensional charge-coupled device (CCD) is used to quantitate polycyclic aromatic compounds by native fluorescence. The mixture is separated by reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and the fluorescence emission from each peak is integrated by the detector. A new technique, charge-dependent variable binning, applied to one-dimensional spectroscopy leads to outstanding dynamic range. Excellent linearity and limits of detection are obtained for several priority pollutants. Synchronous and derivative techniques can be applied to the two-dimensional fluorescence data obtained to resolve overlapping peaks. The analyzed mixture consists of fluorene, phenanthrene, anthracene, fluoranthene, pyrene, chrysene, and perylene.
