Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) consist of fused aromatic rings and are formed as a by-product during the combustion of fuels. Seven PAHs in particular are known for their carcinogenic properties: benz[a]anthracene, benzo[a]pyrene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, chrysene, dibenz[a,h]anthracene, and indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene. As such, they are monitored in both the environment and food (1,2).  In this report, we discuss the use of the molecularly imprinted polymers (SupelMIP SPE- PAHs) for the extraction and analysis of PAHs in olive oil for subsequent GC-MS analysis.
