Examples of suitable initiators include cumyl compounds and or halogenated organic compounds, especially secondary or tertiary halogenated compounds such as, for example, t-butylchloride, 2-acetyl-2-phenylpropane (cumyl acetate), 2-methoxy 2-phenyl propane (cumylmethyl-ether), 1,4-di(2-methoxy-2-propyl)benzene (di(cumylmethyl ether)); the cumyl halides, particularly the chlorides, such as, for example 2-chloro-2-phenylpropane, cumyl chloride (1-chloro-1-methylethyl)benzene), 1,4-di(2-chloro-2-propyl)benzene (di(cumylchloride)), and 1,3,5-tri(2-chloro-2-propyl)benzene (tri(cumylchloride)); the aliphatic halides, particularly the chlorides, such as, for example, 2-chloro-2,4,4-trimethylpentane (TMPC1), and 2-bromo-2,4,4-trimethylpentane (TMPBr).
The research demonstrates that so-called halogenated organic compounds are also produced naturally and "were bioaccumulating in marine mammals--just as PCBs do now--before Monsanto, Dupont, and 3M were making halogenated organic compounds for industrial use," said Emma Teuten and Chris Reddy.
Their topics include the risk assessor as customer, initial sample preparation, metal analysis, analyzing inorganic parameters, petroleum and polyaromatic hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, non- halogenated organic compounds including semi-volatile organic compounds, and ecological assessment and toxicity screening in contaminated land analysis.
