Reductive transformation of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), and nitroglycerin (NG) by pyrite (FeS(2)) and magnetite (Fe(3)O(4)) was investigated to determine the role of Fe(II)-bearing minerals on the fate of toxic explosives in Fe/S-rich natural environment. Results from batch experiments showed that 65% of TNT and 45% of RDX were transformed from solution in the presence of pyrite under pH 7.4 buffered conditions within 32 days. Without a buffered… CONTINUE READING
