Jamaican journal of science and technology
Date of Publication
Extensive investigation of the catalytic degradation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) was carried out in solution using some peroxo complexes of chromium (IV) and iron complexes in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide. The change in concentration of PCBs was measured by using a gas chromatograph attached to an electron capture detector. A mass spectrometric detector was used. The results obtained are discussed.....
