Chemical dehalogenation of pentachlorophenol-containing wood preserving waste (EPA K001) with potassium polyethylene glycol (KPEG) was investigated. The effect of treatment on the waste toxicity was examined by monitoring genotoxicity of the organic wastes. The effects of temperature, reaction time, and pentachlorophenol concentration on dehalogenation were also investigated. Samples were collected throughout treatment and sequentially extracted with dichloromethane and methanol. Chemical… CONTINUE READING
