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)
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)
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)
