Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) catalyzed by soluble iron or naturally occurring soil minerals, (i.e., modified Fenton's reagent) was investigated as a basis for mineralizing sorbed and NAPL-phase benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), a hydrophobic and toxic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, in two soils of different complexity. 14C-Benzo[a]pyrene was added to silica sand and a(More)
The conditions that support the simultaneous activity of hydroxyl radicals (OH.) and heterotrophic aerobic bacterial metabolism were investigated using two probe compounds: (1) tetrachloroethene (PCE) for the detection of OH. generated by an iron-nitrilotriacetic acid (Fe-NTA) catalyzed Fenton-like reaction and (2) oxalate (OA) for the detection of(More)
The possibility of simultaneous activity of superoxide-mediated transformations and heterotrophic aerobic bacterial metabolism was investigated in catalyzed H(2)O(2) propagations (CHP; i.e., modified Fenton's reagent) systems containing Escherichia coli. Two probe compounds were used: glucose for the detection of heterotrophic metabolism of E. coli, and(More)
