Thermal destruction testing was conducted with three pesticides: Kepone, Mirex, and DDT. A specialized laboratory technique incorporating a two-stage quartz system was developed. It is important to note that in this system the pesticide was first converted to the gas phase, then exposed to the high-temperature destruction conditions. Critical parameters of temperature and residence time were accurately measured. Both the Kepone and DDT molecules, at a residence time of approx. 1 second, were essentially destroyed at 500C; however, Mirex, at the same residence time, required 700C for destruction.
