Abstract: The application of a new extraction technique which is known as stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE), followed by high-performance liquid chromatography with a fluorescence detector, was assessed for determining eight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in water samples. The extraction conditions such as acetonitrile addition; effects of temperature and salt; and finally, extraction and desorption time profiles were studied. Once SBSE was optimized, analytical method parameters such as linearity (r(2)>0.991…
