||International Agency for Research on Cancer, 150 cours Albert-Thomas, 69372 Lyon Cedex 08, France, 1983. 81p. Illus. 183 ref. Price: SF.20.00.
||Three methods using: potassium permanganate under acidic conditions; concentrated sulfuric acid; and aqueous saturated potassium permanganate solution, are described for the destruction of a selection of benzanthracenes, benzo(a)pyrene and 3-methylcholanthrene. The preferred method is indicated for these wastes as pure substances, in solutions in oil and various organic solvents, in aqueous solution, in spills, and as contaminants in glassware and petri dishes.
