Nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitro-PAHs) were determined in different kinds of food. The investigation of food matrices necessitates the development of appropriate analytical procedures for sensitive monitoring and determination of these compounds. The analysis of the nitro-PAHs was carried out by GC/MSD, GC plus mass spectrometry, and GC/NPD (nitrogen-phosphorus detection) GC plus nitrogen-phosphorus detection. Seven nitro-PAHs were positively identified and quantified in vegetables, smoked and grilled foods, oil, tea, coffee and spices.
