A review and evaluation of available processes for detoxification of the first group of hazardous materials was conducted during Phase 1 of the interagency agreement (1974 calendar year). The processes used for specific hazardous materials were identified. One process found during this literature survey described the reaction of PCB's with amines to give a variety of products that were supposed to have useful properties. Two of these products that were available were obtained and evaluated toxicologically. Both proved to be highly toxic. Products produced by catalytic decomposition were also evaluated for toxicity. In many cases the products were not adequately identified chemically and accurate toxicological evaluation could not be accomplished.
