Polychlorinated biphenyl molecules can be biologically dechlorinated through sequential losses of a chlorine atom, following 840 pathways from higher chlorinated to lesser-chlorinated congeners and biphenyl. Previously, eight recurring sets of pathways, herein referred to as explicitly reported pathways in dechlorination processes, have been identified through qualitative analysis of shifts in congener masses in field and laboratory studies. Dechlorination process generalizations were… CONTINUE READING
