    Abstract

    The composition of alkanes; hydrocarbons from the hopane, oleanane, and abietane series and their derivatives; alkylbenzenes; naphthalenes; phenanthrenes; and tetra-, penta-, and hexacyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in peats from fen and bogs in the south of Western Siberia far from anthropogenic pollution sources was analyzed. The found differences in the composition and concentrations of individual compounds can be due to the species composition of bioproducers (moss, bacteria, flowering plants, and conifers), organic matter disposal conditions, the hydrodynamic regime of peat mires, and frequent fires in an area.
