The document provides abstracts of the 33 papers presented at the conference sessions addressing the environmental fate of chlorinated organic chemicals; the anaerobic dechlorination of chlorinated phenols; the dechlorination of polychlorinated biphenyls; the dehalogenation of aliphatic compounds; the dechlorination of pesticides; the abiotic dechlorination of porphyrins, corrins, and non-tetrapyrroles; the kinetics of dehalogenations; the microbial physiology of dechlorinating systems; and the hydrolytic dehalogenation of compounds. Research results were provided for a variety of compounds, including polychlorinated biphenyls, pentachloro-dibenzodioxan, polychlorinated phenols, 2,4-dichlorophenol, aroclors, 1,2-dichloroethane, tetrachloroethene, methyl chloride, perchloroethylene, 2,4,5-tetrachlorophenol, and pentachlorodibenzofuran.
