Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon with three six-membered rings and one five-membered ring with a single sulphur atom

Benzo[b]naphtho[2,1-d]thiophene belongs to the class of sulphur-containing-PAH (S-PAH). It occurs in fossil fuels and is produced by incomplete combustion of organic materials. It can be detected e.g. in emissions from lignite combustion, coal tar derivates, exhausts from diesel engines and lubricant oils.

Benzo[b]naphtho[2,1-d]thiophene is carcinogenic in animal experiments.

Specimen

  • Common mussel species as invasive animal in rivers and lakes with high information level for water pollution
  • Fine insoluble mineral or organic particles in the water phase
  • One of the most important edible mussel species common in the North and Baltic Sea
  • A major primary producer in semi-natural and anthropogenic affected ecosystems.
  • A major primary producer in semi-natural and anthropogenic affected ecosystems.
  • A deciduous tree typical of ecosystems close to dense conurbations and an indicator for the characterisation of the immission situation during the vegetation period.
  • As the most dominant deciduous tree species in Central Europe, it plays a significant role in most nearly natural and also anthropogenically influenced forest ecosystems up to an altitude of 1100 m.
  • As an organism living at ground level, it is a major driver of the decomposition of organic material (e.g. plant litter).
