Biological monitoring of naphthalene for exposures to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in small and medium enterprises

  • Project number: F 2056
  • Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA)
  • Status: Completed Project


Biological monitoring will be carried out on workers with occupational exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and a non-exposed control group.

Therefore, 1-naphthol and 2-naphthol in urine and naphthalene in exhaled breath will be analytically determined.
