Abstract : In a system and method for enhancing dehalogenation and decomposition reactions. an organic reactant is brought in contact with a stable, non-soluble, porous, electronically non-conductive inorganic solid (reaction enhancer) in a fluidic medium to form a reaction mixture of low ionic strength. The reaction mixture so formed is then subjected to an electrifying force thereby enhancing the chemical reaction. Reaction products are then collected.
