Evaluation of a degradation method for nitrosamine wastes

, : Evaluation of a degradation method for nitrosamine wastes. Journal of Environmental Pathology and Toxicology 2(2): 513-516

Nitrosamines are being used with increasing frequency in biomedical laboratories. Disposal of these potentially carcinogenic compounds requires a decontamination procedure that is simple, efficient, and economical. Degradation of nitrosamine wastes by alkaline reduction and the analytical techniques for evaluating this method have been explored. Efficiencies of degradation vary from 9.0 to greater than 99.9 percent of a group of ten nitrosamines.
