Several other epidemiologic studies have examined the reported association between halogenated hydrocarbon
contamination and increased incidence of major congenital cardiac malformations, other birth defects, and birth outcomes (3,6-12).
Oxygenated solvents are the most widely used with hydrocarbon (specially aliphatic) and halogenated hydrocarbons
being gradually phased out.
He first discusses the basic principles of pharmacology and toxicology, risk analysis, and air, water, and soil pollution, then various toxicants and hazards, such as airborne hazards, halogenated hydrocarbons
, metals, organic solvents, food additives and contaminants, pesticides, mycotoxins and other toxins from unicellular organisms, hormone disruptors, radiation hazards, and natural environmental hazards like venomous and toxic animals.
For the most part these replacement agents are halogenated hydrocarbons
that have low ozone depletion potential (ODP).
Chemclad Enecon describes it as the ultimate in chemical protection systems because of its resistance to a very wide variety of organic and inorganic acids, alcohols, alkalis, esters, ethers, hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons
, ketones, oils, salts, etc.
The chapters cover microbial physiology and ecology, natural hydrocarbons in the environment, microbiology of methane and C1 compounds, biodegradation of methane and other C1 compounds, biodegradation of aliphatic and alicyclic hydrocarbons, biodegradation of monoaromatic and chloroaromatic hydrocarbons, biodegradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons
and their biodegradations, biodegradation of ethers and ether fuels, biodegredation of hydrocarbons in the environment, application of molecular biology and protein engineering to the degradation of hydrocarbons, bioremediation treatments, microbiology of oil reservoirs, applications of petroleum microbiology to chemical synthesis, and microbial desulfurization of petroleum products.
Ash particulates of halogenated hydrocarbons
create a continuous buildup of hazardous substances that leach into the soil and groundwater where they can remain for decades.
It's the organization's "Allergy-Free" standard, which limits the concentration of organic substances including formaldehyde, phthalates, and halogenated hydrocarbons
Electronic waste materials contain a number of toxic compounds, including halogenated hydrocarbons
such as brominated hydrocarbons, that are used as flame retardants.
Five classes of pesticides were examined in the new study: phosphates, pyrethroids, halogenated hydrocarbons
, carbamates, and endocrine disruptors.
