PETERS, Dennis G. et al. Electrochemical Dehalogenation of Organic Pollutants. J. Mex. Chem. Soc [online]. 2014, vol.58, n.3, pp.287-302. ISSN 1870-249X.

This review summarizes our own research, published since 2004, dealing with electrochemical reduction of halogenated organic compounds that are environmental pollutants. Included are sections surveying the direct and mediated reduction of the following species: (a) chlorofluorocarbons; (b) pesticides, fungicides, and bactericides; (c) flame retardants; and (d) disinfection by-products arising from the chlorination of water. To provide the reader with a perspective of these topics beyond our own work, a total of 238 literature citations, pertaining to studies conducted in numerous laboratories around the world, appears at the end of this review.

Keywords : Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs); Flame retardants; Disinfection by-products (DBPs); Pesticides; Direct reduction; Catalytic reduction.
