of Haloganated Aromatic Hydrocarbons
. . some of these or their related compounds, of both
synthetic and natural origin, can seriously interfere
with reproductive function.
derivatives of aromatic and polyaromatic hydrocarbons have
been widely used as heat transfer fluids, organic diluents,
plasticizers, fire retardants, pesticides, waxes, and more.
However, recently it has been pointed out that some of these
or their related compounds, of both synthetic and natural
origin, can seriously interfere with reproductive function.
From the pharmaceutical and environmental viewpoints, the
solubilities of these substances are useful to elucidate the
movement and persistence in the environment and to estimate
the hazard or risk associated with them. Therefore, it is
important to evaluate the solubilities of, for example, chlorinated
benzenes, biphenyl, and dioxins in various media including
single, binary, and/or multi-component solvents, micellar
solutions, and polymer solutions.
