Application of Coupled Abiotic/biotic Processes for the Remediation of Contaminated Soils Grant uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • Nitroaromatic compounds related to agricultural use, such as 2-sec-butyl-4,6-dinitrophenol (dinoseb), or related to Department of Defense activites, such as trinitrotoluene (TNT), are common soil, surface water, and ground water contaminants and have been shown to be either toxic, carcinogenic or mutagenic to living organisms. The purpose of this study is to investigate the application of coupled abiotic/biotic mineralization of TNT in soil systems at pilot and field scale.
