A suitable method for destruction of carcinogenic amines (3,3′-dichlorobenzidine, 3,3′-diaminobenzidine, 1-naphthylamine, 2-naphthylamine, and 2,4-diaminotoluene) in laboratory wastes has been developed. The method is based on the oxidation of these substances with potassium permanganate in sulfuric acid medium resulting in a deep destruction of the test substances.
