||Validated methods for degrading hazardous chemicals - Some halogenated compounds
||June 1991, Vol.52, No.6, p.252-257. 22 ref.
||Two techniques were investigated for degrading a number of halogenated compounds of commercial and research importance. In one, reductive dehalogenation with nickel-aluminum alloy in potassium hydroxide solution was used. The products were generally those obtained by replacing the halogen with hydrogen although concomitant reduction of other groups was also observed. In the second, refluxing with ethanolic potassium hydroxide was used. The products were the corresponding ethyl ethers. In all cases, the compounds were completely degraded and only non-mutagenic reaction mixtures were produced.
