The paper discusses the formation of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) from precursors, such as phenol and chlorobenzenes, under various combustion conditions. It gives results of an exploration of the effects of precursor and catalysts on homologue production and distribution to provide insight into the mechanisms of this EDC formation.
