The use of a solvent (DMSO) as a bore fluid instead of water produced larger outer surface pore sizes, inner surface pore sizes, and fibre porosity (fibre 1: 0.18 [micro]m, 0.43 [micro]m, 62% versus fibre 5: 0.62 [micro]m, 5.04 [micro]m, 80%).
At a pyrene concentration of 2x[10.sup.-5] g/L, the SSF intensities differ, depending on the solvent nature, and the strongest fluorescence signal was detected in the case of DMSO. At a pyrene concentration of 2x[10.sup.-4] g/L, the highest SSF signal was detected in the water-ethanol medium.
