According to the high fluorescence quantum yields of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), the fluorescence spectra of phenanthrene were investigated by three dimensional fluorescence excitation-emission matrix (3DEEM). The results show that the three-dimensional fluorescence spectra of phenanthrene in aqueous solution mainly have two fluorescence peaks. On the basis of three-dimensional fluorescence spectrometry analysis of phenanthrene, the excitation wavelength of 255 nm and emission wavelength of 273 nm were chosen for the quantitative analysis of phenanthrene. The linear range for the determination of phenanthrene was 5.0-250.0 mg x mL(-1), its detection limit was 3. 88 ng x mL(-1), and its relative standard deviation was 4.23% (n=5). It was a good precision. It has been tested satisfactorily for the determination of artificial sample in tap water. The recoveries are in the range of 90%-105%. The method provided basis for the rapid monitoring of trace PAHs in water.

    ABSTRACT: The present paper used synthesized data from the experiment samples to replace partial basic experiments, and increased the training samples amount from 14 to 27. In principal component analysis (PCA), the dimensionality of multivariate data was reduced to n principal components and almost all data information was kept. The PCA reduced the network's input nodes from 60 to 3 to simplify the neural network's structure. Finally, back-propagation neural network was used to train and predict these samples. It had 27 training samples, the input layer had three nodes, the hidden layer had two nodes, and the output layer had two nodes. Its excitation function is variable learning rate method. The results show that the coefficient of recovery can reach 89.6-109.0. It has reached the expected purpose.

    ABSTRACT: 3-D Fluorescence Spectrometry analysis and sorption experiments of Acenaphthene (Acp), one of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), were carried on in this paper. Under the experimental conditions, the optimized excitation/emission wavelength (λex/λem) was 280/320nm. The correlative coefficient of 0.998 and the relative standard deviation of 4.03%(n=5) could be obtained over the linear ranges of 0.025mg/L~1mg/L for the calibration curve. The sorption tests of Acp to surface sediment in Chongqing Section of the Yangtze River showed that the sorption isotherms were fitted with different types of model, including traditional linear partition model and Freundlich model. According to the fitted value of model, the sorption behaviors of Acp to the surface sediment was not affected by the single sorption mechanism but the combined action of linear partition process and surface sorption.

    ABSTRACT: According to the Lambert-Beer laws, the fluorescence spectra of oil in water were investigated by measuring excitation-emission matrixes with FS920 fluorescence spectrometer. On the basis of the three-dimensional fluorescence spectra of oil in water, the excitation wavelength of 290nm and emission wavelength of 324nm were chosen for the quantitative analysis of oil in water. The results show that the concentration of oil in water is linearly proportional to the fluorescence intensity in the range of 1ppm-100ppm, and the measurement model of concentration is obtained with the linear correlation coefficient of 0.9993. The artificial samples has also been tested and the results are satisfactory. The recovery is in the range of 92%-106%. The research provides experimental basis for the quantitative analysis of multi-component oil in water.
