Concentrations, sources and risk characterisation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in green, herbal and black tea products in Nigeria
This study describes the analysis of 16 +1 US-EPA Priority PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) occurrence in twenty-three (23) imported and locally manufactured samples of green, black and herbal tea commercially marketed and widely consumed in Nigeria. A gas chromatograph (GC) coupled with an auto-sampler in tandem with a flame ionisation detector (FID) was used for the analysis. The...
