The paper gives results of an examination of the formation mechanisms of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofuran (PCDF) and their precursors in a laboratory reactor. Both homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions were studied between 200 and 800 C with HCl, Cl2, and phenol as reactants in a simulated flue gas. Analysis of the reactor effluent showed that homogeneous phase production of chlorophenols, potential precursors to PCDD and PCDF, was related to HCl concentration, reaching a maximum formation level at around 650 C.
