Model studies have demonstrated that electron shuttles (ES) such as dissolved organic matter (DOM) can participate in the reduction of organic contaminants; however, much uncertainty exists concerning the significance of this solution phase pathway for contaminant reduction in natural systems. To compare the identity and reactivity of ES in anaerobic sediments with those in model systems, two chemical probes (4-cyano-4'-aminoazobenzene (CNAAzB) either free or covalently bound to glass beads… CONTINUE READING
