INTRODUCTION Chlorinated ethanes and ethenes are among the most frequently detected organic pollutants of water. Their physicochemical properties are such that they can contaminate aquifers for decades. In favourable conditions, they can undergo degradation. In anaerobic conditions, chlorinated solvents can undergo reductive dechlorination. DEGRADATION PATHWAYS Abiotic dechlorination is usually slower than microbial but abiotic dechlorination is usually complete. In favourable conditions… CONTINUE READING
