Polymer-modified nanoscale zerovalent iron (NZVI) particles are delivered into porous media for in situ remediation of nonaqueous phase liquid (NAPL) source zones. A systematic and quantitative evaluation of NAPL targeting by polymer-modified NZVI in two-dimensional (2-D) porous media under field-relevant conditions has not been reported.
