  • 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. This review focuses on mechanisms that govern their formation, chlorination, dechlorination and destruction. As a consequence of their extreme toxicity and propensity to bioaccumulate, PCDD/Fs have been subjected to much scientific research, designed to understand mechanisms and conditions that… CONTINUE READING
