Investigation of structure - Biodegradability relationships in polychlorinated biphenyls using self-organising maps

Abstract:

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) represent a significant, long-term environmental hazard. Persistent in the environment, accumulative in many species, and toxic, they are a serious pollutant at many industrial sites. The most common methods for environmental remediation - thermal or photochemical treatment - are often an unsatisfactory option if PCBs are present in chemically-contaminated sites, since these methods may convert PCBs into even more toxic chemicals such as dioxins. Microbial deg...
