Kinetic studies reported here have shown that acetylene is a potent reversible inhibitor of reductive dehalogenation of trichloroethene (TCE) and vinyl chloride (VC) by a mixed dehalogenating anaerobic culture. The mixed culture was enriched from a contaminated site in Corvallis, OR, and exhibited methanogenic, acetogenic, and reductive dehalogenation(More)
The reaction of 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2-bipyridine (henceforth dmbp) with copper(I) and/or copper(II) bromide under a wide variety of conditions has led to the isolation of 10 different crystalline materials. These include one Cu(I) salt, [Cu(dmbp)(2)]Br (a distorted tetrahedral Cu species and a lattice Br(-) ion); two mixed valence Cu(I,II) compounds,(More)
1-Chloro-1-fluoroethene (1,1-CFE) was studied as a reactive tracer to quantify the anaerobic transformation of vinyl chloride (VC). Batch kinetic studies of 1,1-CFE and VC transformation were performed with an enrichment culture obtained from the Evanite site in Corvallis, OR. The culture is capable of completely transforming trichloroethene (TCE) through(More)
