Mechanisms for formation, chlorination, dechlorination and destruction of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs)
Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) constitute a group of persistent organic pollutants that form almost inexorably in all thermal and combustion operations.Expand

Formation of dioxins and furans during combustion of treated wood
Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/F, dioxin) are produced in combustion of wood treated with copper-based preservatives. This review summarises and analysesExpand

Ab initio procedure for aqueous-phase pKa calculation: the acidity of nitrous acid.
We present an ab initio procedure for accurately calculating aqueous-phase pKa values and apply it to study the acidity of nitrous acid (HNO2, or HONO). The aqueous-phase pK(a) of nitrous acid wasExpand

Prediction of pressure losses in pipe flow of aqueous foams
This paper presents a model for predicting pressure losses in foams of various expansions and pressures, in pipes of any given diameter, once the foam behavior has been characterized at a singleExpand

Effects of wind flow on self-heating characteristics of coal stockpiles
The oxidation process occurring in stockpiles of reactive materials, such as coal, induces a natural convection flow field within the pile. Due to porosity of the stockpile, this flow field isExpand

Analysis of the mechanism of the low-temperature oxidation of coal
The mechanism of the oxidation of coal at low temperatures, i.e., below 100°C, was examined using measurements of the gases emitted from a bed of coal in an isothermal flow reactor. Employing anExpand

Kinetic modeling of low-temperature oxidation of coal
A kinetic model has been developed for determining the rate of oxygen consumption and production of carbon oxides during the oxidation of coal at low temperatures (i.e. <100°C), based on currentExpand

Low-temperature oxidation of coal at elevated pressures
A mathematical model is presented to describe steady-state mass transfer and oxidation processes in coal at low temperatures in a fixed-bed flow reactor. The model incorporates the effects of partialExpand

Quantum chemical investigation of formation of polychlorodibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans from oxidation and pyrolysis of 2-chlorophenol.
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations have been used to obtain thermochemical parameters for formation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/PCDF) from the oxidation ofExpand
