Ecological Risk Assessment--Dioxins and Furans: Hazard and Risk to Wildlife and Aquatic Organisms.
Chlorinated dibenzo-dioxins (CDDs) and chlorinated dibenzo-furans (CDFs) occur in pentachlorophenol as contaminants. These compounds are inherently toxic, as well as environmentally persistent, and their presence may increase the ecological risk associated with the use of pentachlorophenol.
