Title Destruction of aromatic amines in laboratory wastes through oxidation with potassium permanganate/sulfuric acid into non-mutagenic derivatives
Bibliographic information Apr. 1985, Vol.46, No.4, p.187-191. Illus. 23 ref.
Abstract Description of the experimental conditions for the complete degradation of 9 aromatic amines (benzidine; o-tolidine; o-dianisidine; 3,3'-dichlorobenzidine; 4-aminobiphenyl; 1- and 2-naphthylamine; 4,4' - methylene bis(2-chloroaniline); m-toluenediamine). The corresponding degradation products were found to be non-mutagenic to Salmonella typhimurium strains.
