Production and accumulation of surfactants during the chemical oxidation of PAH in soil.

  title={Production and accumulation of surfactants during the chemical oxidation of PAH in soil.},
  author={Joy Gryzenia and Daniel Cassidy and Duane Hampton},
  volume={77 4},
A soil contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) was treated in laboratory slurry reactors with three chemical oxidants: (1) modified Fenton chemistry (MFC) with hydrogen peroxide (HP), (2) MFC with calcium peroxide (CP) (Cool-Ox), and (3) sodium persulfate activated with Fe chelated using ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). A bioreactor served as a control. Samples of slurry filtrate were tested to quantify emulsification of PAH and concentrations of bulk surfactants, using… CONTINUE READING
