There are three dichlorobenzene isomers- 1,2-dichlorobenzene, 1,3-dichlorobenzene, and 1,robenzenes do not occur naturally. 1,2-Dichlorobenzene is a colorless to pale yellow liquid used to make herbicides. 1,3- Dichlorobenzene is a colorless liquid used to make herbicides, insecticides, medicine, and dyes. 1,4-Dichlorobenzene, the most important of the three chemicals.   By Kathleen Doheny. HealthDay Reporter. MONDAY, May 9, (HealthDay News) -- Exposure to pesticides and other chemicals may increase . Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) is a persistent organic pollutant and poses great threat on ecosystem and human health. In order to investigate the degradation law of HCB, a RuO 2 /Ti material was used as the anode, meanwhile, zinc, stainless steel, graphite, and RuO 2 /Ti were used as the cathode, respectively. The gas chromatography (GC) was used to analyze the electrochemical products of HCB on Cited by: 2.   AbstractThe time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) method was performed to investigate the excited-state intramolecular double proton transfer (ESIDPT) reaction of calix[4]arene (C4A) and the role of the intramolecular hydrogen bonds in the ESIDPT process. The geometries of C4A in the ground state and excited states (S1, S2 and T1) were : Se Wang, Zhuang Wang, Ce Hao.

Investigations into the Mechanism of the Photodechlorination of Pentachlorobenzene. INTRODUCTION Photochemical Background. Many polychlorinated aromatic compounds are known to be environmental pollutants.

Perhaps the most notorious of these are the polychlorodibenzodioxins and polychlorobiphenyls (PCB), although there are many other compounds in thisAuthor: Robert Dean Schmidt.

The main photodechlorination pathways predicted in this study are in good agreement with previous experimental results. Our results have provided new insights into mechanism of PCBs photodechlorination, Cited by: In order to further understand the photodechlorination mechanisms of PCDEs a theoretical investigation was performed in this study.

The estimated photodechlorination of PCDEs includes two steps as follows: (2) (n) CDE → (n - 1) CDE + Cl (3) (n - 1) CDE + H 2 O → (n - 1) CDE + HOCited by: Investigation of the photochemistry of urea herbicides (chlorotoluron and isoproturon) and quantum yields using polychromatic irradiation.

Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry17 (2), Cited by: In this study, hexachlorobenzene (HCB) was selected as the probe compound for investigation, because its detailed photodechlorination mechanism was well-established previously. A five-step consecutive irreversible model is derived and used in this study to simulate the photodechlorination process in batch and continuous flow by: Quantum chemical calculations studies were performed to investigate the underlying photodehalogenation mechanisms of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) and polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PBDD/Fs), as well as Mg 2+ by: 4.

Several experiments were undertaken to investigate the mechanism of photodechlorination of pentachlorobenzene. The thermal methoxydechlorination reaction of pentachlorobenzene. Pentachlorobenzene (PeCB) is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C 6HCl 5 which is a chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbon.

Jalal Hawari,a* Attila Demeter,b by: The investigation was carried out under idealized conditions and has considered both reaction kinetics and the degradation mechanism.

It was found that more than 90% of DBP can be degraded within. Pentachlorobenzene is not produced in Canada and currently there is no domestic commercial demand for this substance.

On the basis of limited data, the 2 most significant sources of entry of pentachlorobenzene into the Canadian environment result from spillage of dielectric fluids and from long-range transport and deposition. Here, we report for the first time a laboratory investigation into the photochemical degradation of 2,2',4,4',6-pentabromodiphenyl ether (BDE) in ice solid samples using an artificial UV light.

The mechanism of photodechlorination of pentachlorobenzene (1) in acetonitrile has been examined. The quantum yield of reaction (Φ r) has been found to vary with the concentration of 1. The concentration levels and congener profiles of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), pentachlorobenzene (PeCBz), and hexachlorobenzene (HxCBz) were assessed in commercially available organic pigments.
