Bibliographic information Oxford University Press, Walton Street, Oxford OX2 6DP, United Kingdom, 1991. 50p. 66 ref. Price: GBP 8.00.
Abstract The following polycyclic heterocyclic hydrocarbons are considered: dibenz[a,j]acridine, dibenz[a,h]acridine, 7H-dibenzo[c,g]carbazole and 13H-dibenzo[a,i]carbazole. Reagents proposed for eliminating the carcinogenic potential of these compounds include: potassium permanganate, hydrogen peroxide and iron(II) chloride, and concentrated sulfuric acid.
