Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compound, 1,2 : 3,4-dibenzanthracene, is spectroscopically analyzed in ethanol. Ultraviolet absorption spectra were taken and fluorescence measurements were performed. From absorption and emission spectra, Stokes' lines were clearly discernible and these shifts were recorded. Being a carcinogenic compound, the detection of 1,2 : 3,4-dibenzanthracene presence in the environment as a pollutant with adverse genotoxic effects is vital.
