    Dioxins are a group of synthetic organic chemicals that contain structurally related individual chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (CDDs) and chlorinated dibenzofurans (CDFs). For the purposes of this fact sheet, the term “dioxins” will refer to the aggregate of all CDDs and CDFs. These chemically related compounds vary in their.   CHLORINATED dibenzo-p-dioxins (CDDs) are now widely recognised as contaminants of commercial chlorinated phenols and related products. These compounds possess a .

      CDDs are a family of 75 chemically related compounds commonly known as chlorinated dioxins. One of these compounds is called 2,3,7,8-TCDD. It is one of the most toxic of the CDDs and is the one most studied. In the pure form, CDDs are crystals or colorless solids. CDDs enter the environment as mixtures containing a number of individual components. 2,3,7,8-TCDD is odorless .   Rappe C, Nygren M, Lindstrom G, et al: Dioxins and dibenzofurans in human tissues and milk of European origin, in Keith LH, Rappe C, Choudhary G (eds): Chlorinated Dioxins and Dibenzofurans in the Total Environment II.

This hypothesis is supported by the discovery that coal pyrolyzed in the presence of hydrogen chloride produces these materials.

Dioxins refers to a group of toxic chemical compounds that share certain chemical structures and biological characteristics (see figure 1). Several hundred of these chemicals exist and are members of three closely related families: Chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (CDDs), Chlorinated dibenzofurans (CDFs) and; Certain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

In addition, the samples affected by an oceanic air mass are characterized by a lower contribution of the less chlorinated dioxins in comparison with the furans, consistent with the reported higher reaction rate constants of dibenzo-p-dioxins with OH radicals than those of dibenzofurans.

The most toxic PCBs are those with four or more chlorines with just one or no substitution in the orthoposition. Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDDs and PCDFs) are among the most notorious environmental pollutants.

Some congeners, particularly those with lateral chlorine Cited by: The most toxic and most extensively studied representative of the chlorinated dioxins (PCDDs) is 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD).

Dioxins and dibenzofurans are chlorinated environmental toxins which are sometimes referred to jointly as "dioxins".

The complete names are polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and polchlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF). Dioxins and dibenzofurans are formed in the combustion of organic matter together with materials that contain chlorine, e.g.

PCBs, dibenzofurans and dioxins are mixtures of many chlorinated aromatic compounds, some of which are very persistent both in the environment and in the body.

There are over 75 chlorinated dioxins, chlorinated dibenzofurans, and PCB congeners. Since they are lipophilic, they dissolve in the fatty tissues of the body.CDDs are a family of 75 different compounds commonly referred to as polychlorinated compounds have varying harmful effects.

The CDD family is divided into eight groups of chemicals based on the number of chlorine atoms in the compound. The group with one chlorine atom is called the mono-chlorinated dioxin(s).Chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) (2,3,7,8-TCDD is a member of this class); Chlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs); and Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) (includes both total PCBs and dioxin-like PCBs).
