This research investigates the potential chemical degradation pathways for the important environmental pollutant 4,4-diaminobiphenyl commonly known as benzidine. This involves dissolving the compound in some common matrices found in the environment, observing and recording visual changes and quantitatively measuring the loss of benzidine into its possible degradate(s). This may help assess whether monitoring of benzidine levels by itself is a true measure of the impact on the environment or whether additional related compounds also need to be looked for.
