dioxins
« on: March 07, 2005, 03:27:36 AM »
hi,

I was just wondering why PCDD's and PCDF's were most toxic when they have Cl atoms in the 2,3,7,8 positions?

Thanks very much

Any combination of them are "toxix", the one you listed is just the most common.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

I know that they are all toxic, but ones which have cl atoms in the 2,3,7,& 8 positions are more toxic then the others and I was wondering why this was. I read on a webpage about this but it didnt say why.

Thanks
