Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in Journal of Environmental Monitoring

JEM 2011, Issue 11 front coverThe research of Xiang Li and Jiamin Chen from Fudan University features on the front cover the Journal of Environmental Monitoring.

The futuristic image on the outside front cover image highlights their work on solid-phase microextraction (SPME) analysis of PAHs in fog.  Polluted fog is a serious problem in Shanghai, where the study took place, and this research should provide a basis for better understanding of PAHs in fog-rain events.

    The situation is dangerous. People are worried about air pollution. Shanghai’s level of fine particulate matter under 2.5 microns is alarming. Is there any reason to be optimistic? Hard to believe at a time like this, but the Chinese government is actually way ahead in some environmental policies. Beijing, Shanghai, and five other major manufacturing areas in China this year will launch pilot programs to cut carbon emissions. By 2015, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, this program will regulate up to 1 billion tons of emissions, making China home to the world’s second-biggest cap-and-trade program, behind only Europe.
