The kinetics and mechanisms of the gas-phase pyrolysis of environmentally significant organochlorine compounds

  • Vinton James Carter

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis



To investigate the mechanisms of the gas-phase pyrolyses of organochlorine compounds of environmental interest, more particularly those that might have a bearing on or be involved in incineration processes, either through inclusion in domestic waste or as components of toxic waste materials.

To develop the technique of pulse stirred-flow to the area of organochlorine pyrolyses as an inexpensive, relatively simple and effective method of mechanistic investigation.
