Abstract : This report describes studies that were performed to determine the impact of photolysis and biotransformation on the persistence of HMX in Holston River water and LAAP lagoons. In these environments, photolysis was found to be the dominant transformation process with half-lives ranging from 17 days in Holston River water to 7900 days in lagoon water. In the latter case, poor light transmission through the lagoon water inhibited photolytic processes. Major photolytic transformation… CONTINUE READING
