The Fe(III) reduction test was used to measure the toxicity of 12 organic chemicals [dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T), atrazine, picloram, 4-chlorobenzeneamine, pentachlorophenol (PCP), hexachlorobenzene (HCB), 1,1-bis-4-chlorophenyl-2,2,2-trichloroethane (DDT), trichloroethene, benzene, phenol, linear alkylbenzenesulfonate (LAS)]. The different inherent toxicity of the pollutants is strongly modified by interactions with the soils. The total amounts… CONTINUE READING
