Activated carbon was for the first time used as catalytic substrate in dechlorination process and a significant dechlorination (79 %) of most persistent 2,4,5- trichlorobiphenyl was achieved at 110 oC in water/isopropanol solvent by applying reducing media. It was observed that carbon particles played a catalytic role to enhance the dechlorination process through substitution reactions and by suppressing further chlorination in reaction mixture. Dechlorination at the ortho position of biphenyl was clearly preceded through substitution reaction by hydroxyl and thiol ions. Moreover, in the absence of activated carbon, dechlorination was decreased and substituted products did not observed.
